by Donal Carroll, Evening Herald, 9th July 1963 When the crews line up at the stake-boat for the Senior Rowing Championship at Limerick on July 20, much interest will centre on the wiry, muscular St. Patrick’s blue-and-saffron clad UCD Boat Club eight
In 1962 College did not open until October. A quick few sorties in the Box and the tub pair had one ready for the wide wooden IV borrowed from Trinity.
All four UCD athletes competing at the 2017 World Rowing U23 Championships returned with medals as David O'Malley and Shane Mulvaney finished 3rd in the Lightweight Mens 2- with Shane O'Connell and Andrew Goff following it up with another 3rd place in the Lightweight Mens 4x.
UCD won the Intermediate 8+ title at the 2017 National Championships for the first time since 2008. UCD Ladies Boat Club added the Senior 2- and joined up with Old Collegians to take home the Senior 8+, while Old Collegians themselves had wins in Senior 1x and Senior 2x.
UCD won the Leander Trophy for Mens Senior 8+ at Cork Regatta for the first time since 1971 with wins also coming in Mens Intermediate 8+ and Mens Club 2 8+.

The club is truly shocked and saddened with the passing of Jonathan Devitt.
Johnny made an enormous contribution to the club, not least as Captain in 2002 and 2003. He created foundations that the club still builds on today and it was fitting that he received a Centenary Medal in recognition of this in 2017.
We offer our most sincere condolences to his wife Caroline, his family, his crew mates and all who knew him.
