About Us

In 2023 Donegal Bay Rowing Club will be 50 years in existence. In the intervening decades, the club has progressed from parochial coastal fours rowing to representation at international level in offshore doubles. Vibrant committees and supportive members have enabled the club to compete at national level while still facilitating recreational rowing. As host to two Coastal Championships in 2016/17, the success of these fixtures was attributable to the club's unmatched organisation  input. In recent years partnership with Abbey Vocational School has enabled a joint application for funds via Sports Capital Grants. This has resulted in an expanded indoor winter training programme with the most up to date equipment. With new boats at the pier, the support of Donegal County Council has enabled infrastructre development facilitating more efficient launch and retrieve, together with on site storage. Coaching and development of rowing skills are to the forefront of the club's ethos. Access to youths via the school system is where the club's future is directed. As part of the Rowing Ireland fraternity, the club is proud of it's heritage in Donegal, and looks forward optimistically to the evolution of the sport in the local community.

“I joined because I wanted to get out on the water.  What I didn't appreciate is the focus on training, being part of a team and pushing myself physically.  I started to really enjoy the gym sessions and the craic.  There is a really positive vibe in the club.  Rowing is a complete body workout and rowing on the bay is a real pleasure”

Our philosophy in terms of fundraising is to strive to independently support our club activities when possible and be less reliant on local businesses sponsorship.  We try and give back and fundraise for local charitable causes from time to time.
