Local lad Niall Farrell was a member of the unbeaten Bish Junior 16 Eights who recently finished off a season of wins by taking the title of National Champions in this category. Following wins in Portadown, Carlow, Cork and Galway in which they beat off stiff opposition including rivals the Jes, many from this crew will go on to represent Connacht in the upcoming Inter-Provincial Race in Iniscarra, Cork in August.
Eoin Glynn, also a local lad, was part of the Bish Junior 18 Eights who were narrowly beaten in a nailbiting race which many agreed was the best race in this category for a long time. They were beaten by a mere few feet by Neptune, a club in Dublin which has over 130 championship titles to its name. However, this is a young Bish Crew and they are hopeful to come away with the Championship title next year.
Well done to both lads and best of luck for the future.
