2022 Castleconnell Regatta

Fermoy Rowing Club took 22 crews to Castleconnell Sprint Regatta on Sat 14th May 2022.

The sun shone on a busy schedule of sprint (500m) racing

Our athletes competed well and it was a day of seconds!

The Womens Junior 16 Coxed Quad (Ellie Mahon, Ceola Cullen, Abby O'Shea, Molly O'Brien, Aine O'Mara Cox) started the trend, powering into second place after a nasty crab put them last with 200m to go

The other crews to get second place finishes were:

  • Mens Junior 15 Double (Rory Condon, Jack Burke)

  • Womens Junior 15 Coxed Quad (Lucy Maher, Aoibhin Scannell, Tara Payne, Saoirse Barry, Aine O'Mara Cox)

  • Womens Junior 16 Double (Ellie Mahon, Molly O'Brien)

  • Womens Junior 16 Double (Aine O'Mara, Molly Clifford)

  • Womens Junior 15 Single Schull Tara Payne

We had one win from Ellie Mahon in the Womens Junior 16 Single Schulls, holding off the Tralee boat by a good boat length.

Thanks to Castleconnell Boat Club for a great event and, as always, well done to all the athletes, coaches & parents who represent the club so well :)

2022 Lee Regatta

The club had one of their biggest Regatta days for a long time yesterday, with 40 crews entered in the Lee Regatta. It was the first race for many of the members, and after not being able to race the last 2 seasons it was really nice to be back at it.

On the water, we picked up 2 wins, Ellie Mahon and Tara Payne in the WJ16 2x and Grace Tobin in the WJ14 1x.

Congratulations to our winners, and their coaches and also huge congratulations to all the coaches, parent helpers and the athletes for making it such a memorable day out.

2022 Skibbereen Regatta

Day 1:

in day 1 of the Skibbereen Grand League Regatta. We had 3 Boats rowing and got a 1st and 3rd in the WJ14 1x races, and we had a senior winner with Aine O'Mahony wining the Light weight senior Women's category.

Day 2:

We had 3 boats competing.

In the juniors, we had one boat not make the start due to a technical issue, and a J15 Quad that rowed well to a 4th place finish.

In the Seniors, Aine O'Mahoney competed in a composite double with a rower from Lee Rowing club. They made the A final which was a great achievement for a crew that had very little training time together.

Fermoy RC colours were also on display in the 08h55 "invitational" race with Alison Bergin and her high-performance Team Ireland squad mates using the fact that everything was set up to do a training race as part of their squad training session.

Congratulations to the rowers and coaches who competed at Skibbereen

2022 Skibbereen 1k Junior Regatta

The JW14-16 Squad went to Drinagh Lake in West Cork for the inaugural Skibb 1k Regatta Yesterday. The girls competed in 8 races across the day, performing well. It is really nice to see racing back again, and we hope that the rowers enjoy the competitions and continue to represent the club well.

Congratulations to the rowers and coaches who competed at Skibbereen

2022 Neptune Regatta

Aine O'Mahoney, Ellie Mahon and Molly O'Brien went to Neptune last weekend to compete in the first regatta of the season, all rowed well and were competitive.
