The Cork Head of the River was held on the Marina on the 18th February.    Shandon had a huge entry of 44 crew and a very satisfactory return of 7 victors pennants.     Once again our junior 18 girls had double wins in the WJ184x- and the WJ18 2X.   In the former, Laura, Saoirse, Holly and Roisín led a field of 4 crews home by well over 2 minutes and Saoirse and Laura won the latter by over 1 minute from a field of 12.  Another excellent win was that of Andy Harrington in the MJ18 1X by 17 secs from a large field of 15 athletes.   Brian O'Flynn beat Mike Griew in the battle of (former!) titans in the Mens Master 1X by 8 seconds in field of 6.   Pennants were also won in the Men's Master 2-, Women's Junior 15 Eight and the Women's Intermediate Scull.
