The first ‘Slider’ races to be held in Ireland took place on the day which involved four crews on moving ergs racing as their provinces. 

All the ergs used for racing were brand new and taken out of the boxes Friday.

Joe Cantillon of RowFit described the event as “a very successful day.”

Attention now turns to the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships which are to be held on Saturday 24th January 2015 at the University of Limerick. More information about the event is available here.
