Captain: Johnny Devitt
A grateful contribution from the Rowing Development Fund coupled with money raised from the Table Quiz helped the Inter four which raced successfully at Cork and Athlone finalise their plans for Henley Royal Regatta which was to be held from Wednesday 2nd to Sunday 6th July. The crew of Stroke: Dermot O’Sullivan, 3: Siaghal MacColgain, […]
The club has entered 8 crews in this years National Championships. The Henley Four are all eligible to race at Intermediate level and are aiming to produce a good performance to take home a pot in the Inter Fours event which will be a straight final to be held at 12:30 on Friday morning. Their […]
A Table Quiz was held on 25th June to raise money for the Henley fund and to subsidise a training camp for the Novice group. The event took place in the traditional mastermind arena of Madigans in Donnybrook and despite some controversial questions, an enjoyable night was had by all. The first placed team of […]
The following Saturday, the 21st June, saw the club compete in Athlone Regatta at Coosan Point. With the Inter Eight disbanded after Cork, the Inter Four was working hard to build on their success at Cork. And this they did with a good win over an improving UL crew, UCC and Metro winners St.Micheals by […]
The club travelled to the Championship course at Inniscarra, Co. Cork to contest Cork Regatta on Saturday 14th June. The Intermediate squad made up for the disappointment of only finishing 5th in the Eights by winning the Fours event by a sizeable margin of two lengths over Garda and University of Limerick. The UCD ‘A’ […]
Metro saw the good fortunes of the squads in the club change somewhat for the better. The Novice Squad achieved a very creditable second in the Novice 8s and a good performance in the Novice 4s. The Intermediate 8 came second in their event and the Intermediate pair of the McColgain Brothers, in no way […]
Well a month into the regatta season and not too many results to report. The Neptune/Commercial regatta weekend pretty much came and went without much success. NUIG took home the Wylie this year after winning the Senior and Novice races at the Uni Champs in Castlewellan. Their success in the senior race ensured that they […]
Trinity deservedly reclaimed the Gannon Cup in perfect conditions last Saturday. It was a classic Colours encounter with Trinity taking the advantage from the off and then extending their slim lead following a strong push past the Four-Courts. UCD struggled to find top gear. The verdict was ¾ of a length by the finish on […]

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.

Following the cancellation of the 2020 Championships, UCD raced some pieces in perfect conditions at Lough Rynn to wrap up the season.
Thanks to Carrick Rowing Club, Leitrim County Council and Rowing Ireland for accommodating us at an incredible facility, and to Cork Boat Club and Dublin University Boat Club for making the trip and providing some cracking competition.
We look forward to building on the hard work put in by the squad and coaches next season.
Thank you to UCD Sport for their continued support during an unprecedented time.
