New Ross Boat Club

New Ross Boat Club was established in 1876 and is the oldest sports club in New Ross, Co Wexford, Ireland.

The original club house was built in 1890 and was replaced with the current facility in 1987/9.

Rowing exhibits great sportsmanship, team work and fitness for both women and men of all ages and abilities.

New Ross Boat Club has an excellent rowing programme. Currently, there is training every day of the week. During the dark winter months training takes place indoors with a range of training programs including indoor rowing, pilates, weight training and circuit training with rowing on the water on Saturdays and Sundays.

During the summer months members are out on the water rowing as much as possible during evenings and weekends.

Members compete nationally and internationally in rowing competitions and the club also hosts events such as the Barrow Challenge, first held in 1973, where about 100 crews compete in rowing 18km from St. Mullins to New Ross.
