The Great River Race - 27th Sep 2014 - London
    In 2014 Courtmacsherry Rowing Club took part in London's Great River Race for the first time. Rowers from our Veteran Men's squad along with Brian Whelton, our Club Chairman, took on the gruelling 22 mile course on Saturday 27th Sep. 2014.
    The clubs participation in the race is completely funded by the individuals involved but they used the event as an opportunity to raise money for two charities that are close to our hearts.  The charities that were chosen are The Irish Cancer Society and Aware We very much appreciated your support in helping us to raise funds for these worthy causes.
