Quadrangular, 1974 ~ On 21stJuly 1974, following our success at the National Championships, the Garda VIII were selected by the IARU to represent Ireland at the Quadrangular International at Llandegfedd, Monmouthshire, Wales. In a very exciting race the victorious Garda crew beat England, Scotland and Wales. Christy O’Brien and Joe Homan (Cox) also raced as part of an Irish coxed IV, but unfortunately after hitting the buoys they came second behind England. Despite our win in the VIIIs the overall victory went to England who scored nineteen points, Ireland were second with fifteen, Wales third with nine and Scotland fourth with seven.
