This Thursday 5th of May, the weather gods were on our side as Get Going Get Rowing returned to its ‘Blitz it – Splash and Dash’ event at the Grand Canal Dock. Over 200 students turned out to race from schools across Dublin. Racing was fast and furious and the final race ended in an exciting photo finish between Holy Faith one and two and Presentation Terenure. Photos of the event will be available shortly on our social media channels.
Tomorrow, Friday the 6th of May will see the return of Get Going Get Rowing boats to the Grand Canal with a collaborative Corporate event with Olympian Niall O’Toole of Crew Class. Companies from Dublin will learn to row and then compete in a fun on the water regatta.
On Saturday, crews from all over the country will come to Grand Canal for a recreational row through Dublin City to Islandbridge where they will have a social BBQ to round off the weekend.
Feel free to come along and support our event in person, or follow us on social media to catch the action across this 3 day event.
