#ROWING: Cork Head of the River, which was scheduled for the Marina in Cork tomorrow (Friday) has been called off. The honorary secretary of the organising committee, Susan Dunlea, informed interested parties today of the decision, stating: "It is with regret that I have to inform you that Cork HOR scheduled to take place tomorrow, Saturday 15th February, has to be cancelled due to the weather forecast. Apologies for any inconvenience caused."
Irish rowing has had no competitive event this year so far. Six heads of the river have been called off: Kerry, Sligo, St Michael's, Shannon, Lagan and now Cork. St Michael's originally rescheduled for next Saturday, February 22nd, but last night abandoned this plan as well.
