We are delighted to announce Michael R Hughes as the July volunteer of the month!

Michael was previously a member of Galway Rowing Club and was a member of the board of Rowing Ireland as the Connacht representative from 2006 to 2010.

In 2010, Michael was chair of the championship committee and we were delighted to see him back again this year in 2023 to run a very successful event down at the National Rowing Centre. With a commanding presence and an infectious enthusiasm for the sport, he has become a pivotal figure in the organisation and execution of the Irish Rowing Championships.

Michael’s commitment and passion to the success of this years championship was evident prior to, and, throughout the whole weekend. His experience and love of the sport is evident and he is very deserving of this months volunteer of the month.
