In 2019 Carlow rowing club celebrated 160 years of rowing and then Covid hit.  This year brings us back to the water having missed the last two years of regattas and the excitement is palpable throughout the club.

At the launch of the Carlow Rowing Regatta – Anthony Dooley (Dooley Motors), Deirdre Redmond (Seven Oaks Hotel), Shane Kelly (Kelly Pharmacy), Michael Hosey, Elaine Rowe (CRC), Elaine Grant (Carlow Credit Union), Michael Curran (CRC Secretary).

The June regatta will see over 19 rowing clubs take part in this event with races taking place over the two days.

Saturday will run 60 races from 11am to 4pm and Sunday races will take place from 8.30am to 4.30pm.

From Junior 13 up to Master level and everything in between there will be something for all ages to enjoy from the banks of the river Barrow.

The club is supported by a huge volunteer committee, coaching teams and parents. President Seamus Scully, club Captain Pat Slater and Regatta Secretary Michael Curran have again this year worked together with many others to bring one of the years rowing highlights to the river Barrow.

The club looks forward to welcoming everyone over the two days. A particular and sincere thanks must also go to all local the businesses and individuals who sponsor and support this event each year.
