Irish Junior VIII Championship, 1967 ~ On 1st July 1967, after a relatively difficult semifinal against Neptune, Garda went on to a comfortable victory of two and a half lengths over Queen’s in the final on the Corrib at Galway Regatta. Unfortunately, Pat Ryan who had rowed with the crew during the year took ill and was unavailable for the Championship. Jim Muldoon was drafted in from the maiden crew and helped the Club retain the Irish Junior VIII Championship for a fifth year in a row. The Irish Times (3/7/67) reported, ‘Garda coasted away in grand style to win convincingly’.
