Indoor Rowing 1As the evenings get longer and time on the water gets shorter, indoor competitions have come to the fore for many of our rowers. 2nd year, Aoife Hensey had great success at the Irish Provinces Indoor Rowing Championships, in UL Arena on Nov. 24th. This annual pre-Christmas event is one of the biggest attractions on the rowing calendar during the winter months. Aoife, who rows for Athlone Boat Club, finished 3rd in the Women’s Junior 13’s 3 minute event. Aoife, who trains five days a week, described the event as tough but extremely fun. She is already preparing for the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships which will take place in January. This is the premier Irish indoor event and will see competitors from all over the world take part. We wish her every success.
