Corrib Head of the River, the rowing event scheduled for Galway on Saturday, has been cancelled because the flow of the river is too strong to safely hold the event. This means that all seven heads which should have been held this year have been cancelled.
Meanwhile, Rowing Ireland has announced that it will limit access to the National Rowing Centre to high the Olympic training squad, coaches and “essential staff”.
Rowing Ireland says that no one outside this group will be granted access until April 5th, when the decision will be reviewed.
Development camps, trials for under-23 and juniors and club and schools activities will not be allowed.
