St Michael's Rowing Club is one of Ireland's Premier Rowing Club's. It caters for oarsmen and oarswomen from Junior 16 to Veteran. During the past two decades it has established itself as one of the major forces in Irish rowing by winning no less than 20 Championships at all grades from Junior to Senior and having 100 of its members selected for International representation.
Unlike certain other successful Irish Rowing clubs, almost all its oarsmen and women are "homegrown" having commenced with the Club as Juniors.
In recent years there has been a great resurgence in Veteran rowing. In 1997 a Veteran eight competed at the London Veteran's Head as well as a Masters regatta in Amsterdam. There are gym sessions on Monday and Thursday nights throughout the winter. Both competitive and less strenuous pleasure rowing take place throughout the year.
The Club has a modern fleet of mostly Janousek racing boats. These include 3 Eights, 4 coxed fours, 2 coxless fours and three pairs/doubles. It has recently completed the construction of a modern gymnasium, complete with rowing tank and weights room. The Club also has four model "C" Concept II ergometers.
St Michael's Rowing Club is part of St Michael's Sporting Club which also has snooker and table tennis facilities in the Cecil Street premises which are located just below the General Post Office.
The Club colours are Royal Blue and Old Gold.
