Killorglin Rowing Club Puck Fair Raffle

Firstly, big thank you to all of you who supported the club over the Puck Fair festival! We were delighted with the response to our ‘Pull Like a Dog at Puck’ competition and the raffle itself, which was supported by local businesses and Club members with 16 raffle prizes donated in total!

A special thank you goes to Mrs. Jackie O’Connor – the owner of the wonderful Rumours Bistro in Glenbeigh for kindly allowing us to use her premises on the Square in Killorglin. The location and the premises itself made a huge difference to our collection. The premises are currently for sale/let, for anyone thinking of starting a business or relocating to Killorglin.

Secondly, well done to our raffle winners as well as our rowing competitors, who placed on top of the board and pulled the fastest score over the 250m in respective categories.

Congratulations to all our rowers who performed so well. It was a hard fought championship, and the weather was also difficult and played its part.  We had one win and a 2nd placing in total.


Our most senior competitor and our youngest competitor, both doing us proud.

  • Jessica Lee won in the Women’s Masters Single final. A wonderful win for the club, well done Jessica we are very proud of you.
  • Then our most junior competitor Airida Mateviciute came 2nd in her final. Well done Airida a wonderful success for your 1st year in rowing. Great things to come.
  • Alanna Dolan in the WJ 15 singles narrowly missed out on 3rd place, well done Alanna.
  • James McCarthy finished 3rd in his semi-final heat just barely missing out on a place in the final, with only two going forward to the final.
  • Rhiannon ODonoghue, Molly OGrady, Orla McCarthy, Anna Tyther and Mara Treacy competed in the Women’s Junior 16 quad race, only two crews from each race of 6 qualify for the final in the afternoon. It was a tough field with 18 entries in total and little separating the crews.
  • Also, well done to Eimear ODonovan who made the semi final in the Women’s Club Single. Eimear gave her all in the Semi but missed out narrowly on top 3 finish to progress further.
