Rowing Hit Again as Cork Head Falls to Weather

14th February 2014
Rowing Hit Again as Cork Head Falls to Weather

#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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
