Rowers from across the county enjoyed a fantastic day on Bannow Bay for the annual annual St Kearns Regatta.

The water conditions were perfect for the 116 crews from Edermine, Ferrycarrig, Killurin and St Kearns that competed in 26 race categories.

St Kearns chairman Pete Mullins was thrilled to see so many new members in the junior categories.

He said: 'It was brilliant to see the delight on their faces when they competed in their first rowing races after many weeks of hard training. It was also a pleasure to see so many parents of the new juniors racing for their first time'.

Competition was fierce and the standard of rowing excellent as many rowers trained hard through the winter months with cross training in cycling, ergs, strength and conditioning etc.

St Kearns would like to especially thank sponsors on the day of Bcosy Wood Briquettes, AHP Electrical Engineering, The Vine Cottage and BHA Construction Ltd.

Dates for the next regattas are: Killlurin on Sunday, August 5, Edermine on Saturday and Sunday, August 11, and August 12 and Trolls and Maudlintown are to be confirmed.
