Crews from Muckross Rowing Club made their mark at the Castleconnell Head of the River Regatta in Limerick at the weekend and, undeterred by the heavy rain on the day, they brought home a number of titles.

Muckross won the women’s cub double, the men’s J14 quad, the women’s J15 quad, the women’s J14 double and the women’s J15 single.
