The 2017 Irish Rowing Championships took place from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th July at the National Rowing Centre, Farran Wood, Cork. It was a bumper weekend of racing due to a record entry of over a thousand crews to take to the waters of the River Lee.
The three-day event showcased some of the best racing Ireland has to offer with 1049 crews competing in 264 races. Castleconnell BC were well represented and provided the club followers with exciting races and performances.
