Water level is up - bring wellingtons !

St Michael's Head of the River was inaugurated in 1981 to fill the substantial gap which then existed  between the end of the Championships in July and  the New Ross Marathon which normally took place in February.

Commencing with a modest entry of sixty three crews in 1981, the Head has grown to be the largest rowing event in the country attracting an annual entry of approximately 400-500 crews from all four provinces. 

The Head is run over a 2.5 mile course from the diving boards in Castleconnell to the bridge in O Briensbridge. It is traditionally run on the first Saturday in December.
