Rowing Ireland is delighted to announce that they have received additional funding through Sports Capital Grant to upgrade the Slips at the National Rowing Centre.

The Sports Capital grant was applied for to update the launching pontoons (slips) at the National Rowing Centre that are 20 years in existence and have been used for 100’s of athletes of all ages and abilities. They are key to the effective functioning of the NRC.

Rowing Ireland’s CEO, Michelle Carpenter said, “We are delighted with the investment by the Minister and Department of Sport into our National Rowing Centre. We were honoured to welcome Minister Griffin to the NRC last year for the celebration of our two World Champions medals. With the success of our Junior Men’s Coxed Four at the European Junior Championships yesterday we know the future of our pathway is also bright.

The initial upgrade work to the boat pontoons at the National Rowing Centre will mean we can accommodate groups safely from our HP athletes to those such as active age, disability and our clubs’ members during our domestic regatta’s and Irish Championships.”

The investment by the Department will be key to upgrading some of the slips and a further application has been made for further upgrades and to the rowing course as part of the large-scale infrastructure programme.

This will underpin and cater for the large growth in rowing across the country both at participative, ability and HP levels our strategy in Rowing Ireland is Rowing a sport for life and this lifelong engagement in sport by all our members is key.
