Club History



              1989 - 2014

 

RUSHBROOKE ROWING CLUB IS ONE OF THE OLDEST AROUND AND CELEBRATES ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR.

 THE ORIGINAL CLUB WAS DESTROYED IN THE LATE 60’S WHEN THE OLD WOODEN CLUB HOUSE AND BOATS WERE ENGULFED BY A FIRE.

 IN 1989 LOCAL RESIDENTS DECIDED TO RESTART THE CLUB AND AGREED ON USING THE ‘YAWL’ CLASS RACING BOAT.

 ON COMPLETION OF THE CLUBS FIRST BOAT, ‘THE CHRISTOPHER G’ IN 1990, RUSHBROOKE WON ITS FIRST GOLD ALL IRELAND MEDAL THANKS TO OUR UNDER 12’SAT THE CAMBER IN COBH.

 SINCE THEN THE CLUB HAS GONE FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH AND CONTINUES TO GROW. WE PROUDLY HOSTED THE COUNTY FINALS ON TWO OCASSIONS IN 2004 AND 2009, AND STILL FIND THE TIME TO GET INVOLVED IN CHARITABLE CAUSES BOTH LOCALLy AND NATIONALLY.
