The Home International trial for 2022 has been rescheduled for next Saturday the 2nd of July between 12-3pm at the National Rowing Centre.

The trial was originally scheduled to be included in Cork Regatta but due to weather conditions this event was cancelled. The Team Managers coordinated with coaches around the country to come to a decision that a trial next weekend was the best option at this point.

The format for the trial will be published shortly, but will remain in small boats and the list of invited athletes is attached. No further applications will be accepted at this point.

If you are still available, please confirm your availability by email to no later than Tuesday 28th of June at 5pm.

Any athletes who are selected at the trial must be available to relocate for training camp before the Home International, and must be ready to travel for the Home International Regatta at London Docklands on July 22nd (Have a valid passport).

Please find the message below regarding some research being conducted by UCC Coach David Breen.

As part of my MSc Thesis titled ‘Specific Dietary Practices in Rowers and their association with Disordered Eating, I am looking for rowers aged between 15* and 30 years to complete a short survey. The survey is comprised of 3 parts:

1.       General information

2.       Dietary practices

3.       Disordered eating screen for athletes

The short survey will take roughly 10 minutes to complete, and all information provided by participants in this research project will be strictly confidential.

This research aims to further our knowledge of the dietary practices of rowers and investigate if there is an association between dietary adherence and disordered eating. It also aims to investigate the prevalence of disordered eating in rowers.

I would greatly appreciate any competitive rowers filling out my survey as well as sharing it amongst your own training circles. The survey can be found at the below link:


Any questions or concerns about this research can be directed to

*Any individuals who are under 18 will be required to gain parental consent before completing the survey.
