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.
