Last Sunday the hard work and dedication of Fermoy's Junior Crews really came to fruition at the first of  series of "At Home" Regattas held by Cork Boat Club.  Fermoy oars people took home a total of 27 medals between them, winning seven out of ten events on the day.

The first win was in the Men's Junior 13 quad, coached by John Hurley. Stroke Shane Hurley kept his crew of Tiernan Ryan, Jack O'Donnell, David Mulcahy and Cox Bryan Hurley calm and collected as they crossed the line with ease. However, that was not all the Hurley Family had to offer, Colm Hurley took to the water in the Men's Junior 14 Scull to place first place over two very strong Cork Boat Club Scullers.

The next win came in the form of the Women's junior 14 quad. With sisters Sarah and Jenny Murphy in stroke pair followed by Grainne Daly and a Cork Boat Club Girl, they took first place in their heat to place them in prime contention for a medal in the Final. Fresh from her win in the quad, Sarah Murphy battled her way through to the final to take first position in the women's Junior 14 Sculls, ahead of Cork Boat Club.  Next it was the turn of the Men's Junior 15 Quad, who, under the close guidance of Coach Tony O'Brien, sailed their way through to the final to take gold ahead of Presentation College and Cork Boat Club. In the Men's Junior 13 Sculls it was an all Fermoy Affair as Jack O'Donnell just edged ahead of fellow club member Garry Colman. The final win of the day was in the Men's Oct, comprising of a combination of both Junior 14 & 15 Oars people, they fought off Presentation College with ease to secure gold medal position. for hosting such a wonderful and successful event.

Many thanks are due to Cork Boat club for hosting such a wonderful and successful event.  Many thanks are also due to all the parents and friends of Fermoy Rowing Club who traveled to Cork to help out!
