Rowing on the Liffey since 1836
Sculler Turlough Hughes made history today by becoming the first DUBC oarsman to win the Dublin Sculling Ladder with an impressive time of 6:31.67, just edging out last year’s winner by 0.98 of a second. This comes after a successful day at The All Ireland Youth and Open Regatta two weeks ago where he made the A final. The full set of results can be found here.
DUBC has an exciting Freshers’ Week planned. We will be recruiting on Saturday at Trinity Hall. Then from Monday to Friday, Front Square will host the annual Freshers’ Fair, where DUBC will have a stand. Our Open Day will take place at the Boathouse on Thursday at two o’clock, which will be a perfect opportunity to see what DUBC is all about.
A Service of Thanksgiving for the life of Rob van Mesdag will take place on Monday 24th September 2018 at 6pm in Trinity College Chapel, by kind permission of the Provost. There will be a reception afterwards in the Senior Common Room.
