Rowing – ‘All In A Row’ Liffey Challenge
The ‘All In A Row’ Liffey Challenge
Saturday, 3rd December 2022
On Saturday 3rd December, 30 of our Rowers participated in The ‘All In A Row’ Liffey Challenge which was established by the rowing and boating community in 2016, in an effort to raise much needed funds for local charities for both the RNLI and The Irish Underwater Search and Recovery Unit. A generous donation of €500 was made towards these worthy charities on behalf of the club.
This event, an ambitious challenge took place on Dublin’s River Liffey. As the sun rose, boys began to rig their boats at 7am before taking off from the Tom Clarke bridge to Heuston Station Bridge and onto the Grattan Bridge during high tide. A wreath laying ceremony, attended by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Dublin, took place to commemorate all those who have lost their lives through drowning.
This charity event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and hopefully will form as an annual event in the College rowing calendar.
Thank you to Pat Gannon and his team of coaches for supporting the boys for the duration of this event.
