Muckross Top Eight at Stop-Start Metro

12th June 2010
Muckross Top Eight at Stop-Start Metro

Muckross took the lead early and had an impressive win over NUIG in Division One of the eights competition at Metropolitan Regatta at sunny  Blessington. The event suffered a series of hitches and finished two hours late. Some clubs were unable to wait and missed key races. Commercial were awarded the senior men’s four (The Blue Riband)  title but race organisers later contended that the official result was a win for NUIG.
