The Wylie Cup is the oldest and most prestigious prize for University rowing in Ireland. Originally presented by IARU President Mr. Justice Wylie in 1922 to encourage intervarsity rowing it has been competed for since under various rules.
From 1922-1927 it was raced in the Senior 4+ before moving to the Senior 8+ in 1928.
From 1937 onwards it was expanded to include the Junior 8+ (equivalent to present day Intermediate) and Maiden 8+ (Novice) with the winners being the club with most wins across those events (or the winners of the Senior 8+ in case of a tie).
From 1974-80 it was modified to use a points system that took account of all results at the University Championships before reverting to the eights.
2014 saw the addition of the Club grade in Irish Rowing and this is now also included in deciding the winners of the Wylie Cup.

As 2019 draws to a close it’s a chance to look back over the last decade and we have to say we are incredibly proud of what UCD Boat Club and UCD Ladies Boat Club have achieved.
UCD rowers have made their mark at home and abroad, from beginner to Olympian, and the clubs are in fantastic shape to build again in 2020 and beyond.
All credit to the athletes, coaches and committees that contributed to these successes and of course none of this would be possible without the support we receive so a huge thank you to our alumni, Old Collegians Boat Club, Ireland., UCD Sport, sponsors MERC Partners Spencer Stuart, KPMG Careers Ireland and Bank of Ireland, parents, friends, family and everyone who has helped the club and its members on their way during an exciting decade.
We’d like to wish you all the best for the new year and we’re already looking forward to what the Roaring Twenties hold #HonCollege ... See MoreSee Less
