Current and past members came together with families and supporters to honour the achievements of the 2017/18 season at the Annual Dinner, held in conjunction with Old Collegians.
The dinner was an opportunity for the club to acknowledge its members who won major honours during the season including Irish Championships in Mens Novice 8+, Mens Intermediate 8+ and Mens Senior 4-.
On top of these were achievements on the International stage where David O’Malley and Shane Mulvaney took Gold in U23 Mens Lightweight 2- while Andrew Goff stroked the U23 Mens Lightweight 4x that won Silver. Old Collegians also honoured Sanita Puspure for a fantastic win in the Womens 1x World Championships and presented the new Sanita Puspure Trophy for Womens Intermediate 1x at the Irish Championships.
Ned Sullivan (President) and Martin Feeley (Coach) spoke on behalf of UCD Boat Club while Murrough O’Brien (President) spoke for Old Collegians.
It was a wonderful occasion to bring different eras of UCD rowing together and a fitting tribute to the tremendous work put in by UCD athletes last season.
Thank you to UCD for their assistance in organising the night and to our guests for their continued support. A special mention to Ciaran Gannon and Peter Stone for again making the trip to Ireland to support the club.
