#CorkBoatClub - Cork city's largest rowing club has unveiled its new look after 18 months of renovations, as the Evening Echo reports.

Thanks to grant funding under the Sports Capital Programme, the works have "transformed our club and ensured that Cork Boat Club’s landmark clubhouse at Undercliffe is now a modern and exciting structure", according to the club's Des O'Sullivan.

Along with a refurbished gym and a replaced clubhouse roof, the project also involved the restoration of the historic Blackrock Coastguard Station on the club's grounds.

The "iconic" 1840s building was preserved with the assistance of Cork City Council’s Conservation Department.

#Rowing: The Ireland trial this weekend is in doubt. The National Assessment has been fixed for the National Rowing Centre at Farran Wood on Saturday and Sunday, December 19th and 20th, but the weather forecast is not good. Rowing Ireland has announced that a decision will be made on Wednesday. “The conditions at present do not look great. We are keeping a very close eye on the wind forecast as well as the amount of flood water coming into the lake.”
