#Rowing: The Cork Sculling Ladder time trial at the Marina has had to be postponed to October 16th. The Evening Echo Women’s Mini Marathon will be held this Sunday, September 25th. In the interests of safety the time trial was moved from this date. The original choice of date for the deferred event, October 9th, proved unsuitable as it would clash with the weekend of the Ireland trials at the National Rowing Centre in Cork.

About the Endurance II Replica Project

An Irish project has been launched on the 150th anniversary of explorer Ernest Shackleton's birth, to build a replica of his ship, Endurance II, in County Kildare.

The project has high-profile patrons such as the Prince Albert II of Monaco, Alexandra Shackleton (Shackleton's granddaughter), and Richard Garriott, the President of the Explorer's Club.

The project is still at the concept stage, so the estimated cost of construction, which is expected to be around €14m, and the annual operational budget of €1.5m are not yet confirmed.

The project organisers are seeking $600,000 (€556,350) from 12 "founders," who will each contribute $50,000. The chairman of private investment firm Kilcullen Kapital Partners, Galway-born O’Coineen, bought the Business Post newspaper in 2018.
