The Fermoy Rowing Club has been operating since 1884. Training takes place on the beautiful three-mile stretch from the weir to Castlehyde House. Every summer, the Rowing Club hosts a regatta, competing against the best teams from across Ireland. It is always a high point on the town’s calendar. Fermoy Rowing Club trains champions. One of the club’s alumni, Gearoid Towey, has competed (and won) at Olympic level, and many of the current members have that potential in them.
