Regardless of the circumstances which surround the race, the Gannon cup, and equally the Dan Quinn Shield, is invariably a tense encounter. However, the 2010 instalment of this prestigious event promises to ratchet up the stress levels several notches, as the sheer number of cancelled events means the two universities have yet to meet on the water. There is much to play for, as UCD aim to claim their third victory in as many years in the senior race, while the novice event will see UCD battle to reclaim the Dan Quinn Shield, having last year relinquished the trophy for the first time since 2005. The race will once again start from O?Connell Bridge, and is scheduled to take place on the 6th of March. For more information visit: www.gannoncup.com
