National Championships Gold for Rowers in Jnr 15 8+ & Jnr 16 8+


The Irish Championships saw the Bish rowers round off the year in style. Well done to all involved from all in the Bish School and Extended Community on their fantastic achievements on weekend of the 16th/17th July 2016.



Our Mens Club 4+ took the Bronze Medal on Sunday morning and this was followed up by a fantastic Jnr 15 8+ race which saw BISH and Portora rivalry come to the fore once again. In a fantastic race BISH won the Jnr 15 8+ Championship by a length over a very strong and well drilled Portora crew, with Shandon and BISH B taking 3rd and 4th. This topped off our weekend and show the strength within the club in the 8's with Gold in the Jnr 16 and Jnr 15 events and Bronze in the Jnr 18 8+.

A huge Thank you to all our coaches who give of their time freely most days of the year in hail, sleet and snow! Thank you one and all. To our drivers - Deiter, Noel and Jim - we couldn't compete without you guys travelling all over the country and aboard with us. Our Parents committee, the School board, School staff and Mr. Ciaran Doyle and John Madden - thank you for your continued support. Most importantly THANK YOU to our Athletes and their Parents for keeping the lads fit and getting them to and from training and events all year round - roll on next season!
