The board and executive of Rowing Ireland, along with the Championship Committee, have decided to include an Invitational Men’s Novice 8+ category at the Irish Rowing Championships.

This will be a non-championship event where the winning crew will receive medals. The ‘two regatta rule’ for athletes will also not apply to this category.

Entries can be made through Tracker in the normal manner by 7 PM on Wednesday, 3rd July
