Limerick Head of the River

The club had a very good outing at St Michael's Head of the River on Saturday last the 29th January.   We had approximately 40 members rowing and all crews performed well.   Congratulations in particular to Niamh O'Mahoney and Saoirse Horgan who won the very competitive WJ18 2X section by 13 seconds from a field of 11 crews.    We had excellent performances also from Liam Hennessy who finished 3rd (from 19) in the National MJ15 1X section and Jack Casey who finished 4th (from 24) in the National MJ16 1X.     As National Competitions these latter two events attracted the best scullers in these age categories from all over the country and the strong placings so early in the season bode well for the spring and summer regattas.
