By Tom Cryan, Irish Independent, 6th July 1959. The German oarsmen from the “Germania” Club in Frankfurt, who had swept the boards at the Cork City regatta on Saturday, suffered what can only be regarded as a sensational defeat at Limerick regatta yesterday, when the little-fancied U.C.D. seniors beat them by a canvas.
While our returning athletes are well into their training routine, Freshers Week brought the UCD Sports Expo and the first major event of the season. The club signed up a large and enthusiastic group of new members and was awarded by UCD Sport and Bank of Ireland for their contribution to the Expo.
UCD Ad Astra student Paul O’Donovan topped off an outstanding season by winning the LM1x at the 2016 World Championships in Rotterdam, while UCD’s David O’Malley and Shane Mulvaney finished 4th in the U23 LM2- and Shane O’Connell 5th in the U23 LM4x.

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.
