Established 1970

Skibbereen Rowing Club

Skibbereen Rowing Club is a voluntary organisation catering for people of all ages, male and female, in the sport of river rowing. Founded in 1970, the club became affiliated to the Irish Amateur Rowing Union (I.A.R.U.) in 1971. Since then the success of the club is manifest by competition at local, national and international level. Located just outside Skibbereen, the club is based on the banks of the River Ilen, a protected stretch of water second to none. As they say about us: "There must be something in the water", for Skibbereen Rowing Club is the most successful club in country, with 186 national titles we are the leaders in the overall national titles record.
