Rowing

University of Galway's biggest club. University of Galway's most successful club. Welcome to University of Galway Boat Club. Here is where champions are made.



Head over to our instagram (@uniofgalwaybc) for the latest news and updates from the team.

University of Galway Boat Club is one of the most successful clubs in the University and indeed in Irish rowing. In the last decade, we have captured numerous National Championship titles across the board - Men's and Women's; Senior, Intermediate and Club; Novice; Masters; eights; fours; quads; pairs; doubles; even the single scull. If anyone has raced it, we've won it.

This past season saw the club take home 9 championship titles, making us the most successful club at the National Rowing Championships. Two of these were in novice events, which is testament to UGBC's unparalleled novice programme.

Furthermore, University of Galway Boat Club athletes have been holding their own at an international level: Athletes Emma Waters, Clíodhna Nolan, Éabha Benson, Martin O' Grady, Thomas Hume and Tom Kelly competed at the Homes International Regatta in London Docklands this year, and brought back three gold medals. Scholarship athlete Brian Colsh will also be representing his country at the World Rowing Championships at the end of September, where we wish him the best of luck.
