#Rowing: The Neptune Head of the River, scheduled for Saturday, November 2nd, at Blessington Lakes, has been cancelled. The entry was low and the organisers decided not to go ahead. The Castleconnell Head, set for next Saturday, Ocober 2nd, has a huge entry and crews were unlikely to compete in both events.

#Rowing: The Neptune Head of the River was cancelled this morning. The event, which was due to be held at Blessington tomorrow, Saturday, fell due to a  deteriorating weather forecast. The organisers apologised for the late notice, especially to those who were involved in the preparation work and thanked all those who volunteered their time and services.

#ROWING: The St Michael’s senior men’s eight were the fastest crew at the Neptune Head of the River at Blessington today, setting a time of 12 minutes and nine seconds in the first of the two heads. Lisa Dilleen was the outstanding woman competitor, winning the senior single sculls. The conditions were variable, with the second head going off in heavy rain and a headwind – only for the weather to clear as the head went on.
