Irish Junior VIII Championship, 1969 ~ On 14th June 1969, seven crews lined up to compete for the Junior VIII Championship of Ireland at Waterford Regatta. Our unbeaten crew proved their worth as favourites, when coming from behind they rowed through a St. Michael’s crew, which also contained a number of Gardaí, to win the title from St. Michael’s by three-quarters of a length, with Waterford in third place. The Irish Independent (15/6/69) reported:

Garda showed superior stamina when winning the final of the Junior Eight Championship of Ireland at Waterford Regatta on the Suir yesterday. St. Michael’s showed from the start and, at the halfway, led Garda by over a length. Garda however put in tremendous spurt to win the Championship by three-quarters of a length.
