PROVINCES IRC 2019 is now FIVE years old and has a special character all of its own. Early in the season the average 2k times are not at their best (yet) BUT they provide a good marker of where your training is at and where you will be come BRIC, IIRC and CRASH-B time – they will improve.

We’ve introduced 10 new 1000m categories for those that have the power but don’t have the endurance (yet).

Anyone getting into rowing or indoor rowing will welcome a chance to test themselves before the Holidays when celebrations may dull performance for a while. Don’t worry yourself though – after the New Year you have the IIRC 2020 to look forward to. 

As ever we will have regular racing right through the day, lots to see and be seen doing, refreshments, loud music, great supporters, lycra, luminous tee-shirts and bragging contests between rowers, clubs & provinces.

The Irish PROVINCES IRC is held in the University of Limerick Sports Arena.

As always the event is open to EVERYBODY; No pre-qualification is required.

Interest is high therefore space and places are limited. Get your entries in to avoid disappointment.
