Cork Head of the River
Monday, 14 February 2011 16:45

The club had a very busy day when not only had we a large entry ourselves in the Cork Head of the River but also had the pleasure of extending hospitality to a large proportion of the twenty plus crews visiting Cork from all parts of Munster and Leinster.     Congratulations to Karen Corcoran-O'Hare and Jack Casey who won the Women's Intermediate Sculls and the Mens Junior 16 Sculls respectively.     Most other crews rowed to the level expected at this stage of their development but there was evidence that some still need to learn how to race to their maximum ability.     

We would particularly like to thank all those who helped out on the day and especially the ladies who stocked and ran our snack bar.    The sales of tea, coffee, sandwiches and pastries raised over €500 which made a significant contribution to the €640 regatta entry fees which the club had to pay on the day.   A sincere thank you to you all.
