This year’s Dublin Currach Racing Regatta takes place on Sunday May 28th at the St. Patrick’s rowing club in Ringsend.

The event will take place from 11am to 6pm with racers coming from as far away as Donegal, West Clare and Connemara to take part. This is St. Pat’s third year hosting the regatta which forms part of the Currach League.

There will be races for men, women and a mixed event that sees rowers dash from the East Link bridge down to the Jeanie Johnston tall ship. Another boating event, the River Odyssey takes place on the same day, starting at the Garda Rowing club and finishing at the East Link around 3pm.
