Irish Junior VIII Championship, 1961 ~ The Irish Junior VIII Championship took place at Galway. Garda beat Queen’s by one length in the heat, before going on to capture the title by half a length from Cappoquin in the final. Connie Byrne recalls the race:

We were racing up the course when one of the crew caught his oar on a rock sticking up out of the water, it never broke our rhythm and we maintained our lead and went on to win the race.
