All Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships


The 2019 All-Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships will take place in Dingle, Co. Kerry over the weekend of Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August 2019.

As with last year, the event is being hosted by the Irish Coastal Rowing Federation who are bearing the entire financial burden from its own resources. Unfortunately because of this we have no choice but to increase the Entry fees in order to try and defray some of the costs. We appreciate that this will put an extra burden on our clubs but we hope you will understand that we have no choice in the matter and understand that it will be the first increase in approximately 15 years. The New Fees regime is explained further down the page.

Dingle Rowing Club / Dingle Regatta Committee

The Irish Coastal Rowing Federation would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Committee and Members of Dingle Rowing Club for opening up their magnificent venue to us on their biggest weekend of the year. The Dingle Regatta is one of the oldest and most famous regattas in the country and is known around the world and the Dingle Regatta Committee and Dingle Rowing Club have graciously and enthusiastically agreed to share their big weekend with us. We Thank them most sincerely and wish them nothing but success for the future.

Entry Fees, Important Information:

In 2018 the ICRF took on the responsibility of bearing the full cost of running the All-Irelands from its own limited resources, unfortunately the ICRF is unable to do this without some assistance from the clubs and therefore we have had no choice but to increase the cost of taking part in the Championships. The additional charge will be by means of a single €10 charge per person taking part, this applies to all rowers and Coxswains. This €10 charge will only apply once per individual so even if the individual participates in a number of races, the €10 charge for that person will still only apply the once. Any individual who has registered in the current year will be exempt from the €10 charge.

The €20 per crew Race Entry fee will continue to apply as normal and Club Entry Fees have been dispensed with for all affiliated clubs.

We Apologise to clubs for our having to impose this charge but with the rising cost of running the event and with the Federation itself now bearing the full cost we have to raise the funds from somewhere and this method has been adjudged to be the most equitable and fairest to all concerned. The ICRF has always endeavoured to keep costs to our clubs and participants to an absolute minimum and to this end the All-Ireland Entry Fees have remained unchanged in roughly 15 years. Unfortunately, as much as we would have wished to maintain the current prices regime, sadly, we have had to grab the bull by the horns and accept the reality that in order to keep this wonderful event going, we must be able to pay our bills.
