Mitchell welcomes Rowing Club compound
‘I am delighted to see the new facilities for the Rowing Club which they
have been trying to get for 20 years. When to other 4 clubs move in there
will be great action to the harbour for adults and juniors. In Ireland we
have ignored the sea even though we are an island nation. This will change
that in Greystones at least. It will also provide activity and interest for
visitors and walkers’.
Greystones Rowing Club gets great facilities
The developers of Greystones Harbour, Sispar, handed over the keys to their
new compound to Greystones Rowing Club on Wednesday. The club has 200
members including 140 juniors, and is a Sea Rowing Club with 3 x 25ft Skiffs
and 65 sea kayaks for members.
Founded in the 1920’s it has never had premises to keep the boats safely and
has been trying to get a place since 1992.
‘We are delighted with the compound, the launching facilities and the
harbour which has been built by Sispar. This will increase the numbers of
young people we are able to train’ said Alan Monahan, Chairman of the club.
We are having our annual Regatta on August Bank Holiday Saturday and hope
for a lively event with lots of participants and spectators. We also hope
the Wicklow lifeboat and Coastguard helicopter will be able to come to the
