International Selection for CBC Rowers

Hi Everyone

We have had a fine season to date and have had some great news from the High Performance Group in Rowing Ireland regarding representative honours bestowed upon seven of our Junior Athletes. This is as much a reflection on the Coaching group, the Committee, the Parents support group and the general ethos of the Club as it is on the individuals. However they are only allowing the Athletes wear the green of Ireland and represent their Country in upcoming International events. As a collective we are proud of their success and indeed many of us will be travelling to support our charges at the events below (I would encourage as many as possible to travel).

If you are in the Club at any stage over the next few weeks please congratulate the Rowers and lets share what is a great achievement for the individuals but also the wider group. We will find a way to mark these selections over the coming weeks and if you have any thoughts and suggestions please bring them forward.
