Callum McCaughan won the Junior 15 men

Eva Noyce won the Junior 14 Women

Roisin Byrne Won the Junior 12 Women.

The Women's Masters and overall winning rower on the day was Shelia Clavin from St Michaels. Shelia is a former Offaly Rower having learnt to row with Frank Durkin in Tullamore.

Other Offaly Rowers performed well on the day. Baithen Mooney Snr completed his first race in a single scull. The weather was perfect and the canal looked so well, it made for a great day's Rowing.

The excellent catering facilities under the direction of Denise Murphy helped sustain the rowers throughout the day.

Congratulations to all rowers and a word of thanks to all coaches parents and past rowers who helped out to make this event a great success.
