In collaboration with Her Sport and thanks to the support of the Women in Sport Streaming grant, Rowing Ireland is delighted to live stream the Women’s race at Erne 4’s Head of the River this Saturday the 19th of November.
The Women in Sport Streaming Grant was announced in June 2022, with Rowing Ireland successful in our application. Visibility is a key area of the Sport Ireland Policy.
The objectives contained in the Policy are:
- Increase the visibility and profile of our female role models in sport.
- Use the heroes of today to inspire the next generation of future Olympians and Paralympians.
