Gearoid Towey on the Blackwater
No Frontiers is the story of eight young rowers chasing three Irish Titles and an Olympic Medal during the course of 1996.
The story follows them through long winter training, the Heads at Cork and Galway and the regattas at Lee Fields, Lee Marina, Fermoy, Amsterdam, Enniskillen, Inniscarra, and finally to Hazewinkle in Belgium.
Their terrible disappointments, their
devastating defeats and their great achievements reveal what it
is like to be a rower and an insight into what a really wonderful
sport rowing is.
Even though only one challenge succeeded,
1996 was an outstanding one for Fermoy Rowing Club. None of the
rowers could have known what lay in store for them as the season
unfolded. This beautifully photographed video is essential viewing
for any rower.
The rowers were Michelle O'Connor, Sharon and Louise Bermingham, Dympna O'Callaghan and Claire Cliffe (Junior Ladies Quad). Paul Hickey (Single Sculls). Paul Hickey and Evin Donnelly (Intermediate Pair). Gearoid Towey (Olympic Medal Lightweight Double Sculls).
