Cork Is Rowing Its Way To Success – Mark O’Donovan, Shane O’Driscoll & Denise Walsh With Cork Credit Unions

Cork & Irish Rowers – Ireland’s New Heroes

Never has the phrase, ‘row, row, row your boat’ been so current than since Paul and Gary O’Donovan took the silver for Ireland at the Olympics.

Ever since, rowing has been a hot topic and has set a new beginning for Irish athletes. Though Paul and Gary are indeed heroes, we have had a surge in Irish rowing talents, as seen below in our image with Mark O’Donovan, Shane O’Driscoll and Denise Walsh.

Irish rowers are a huge inspiration to us all, showing that through hard work and dedication, amazing new heights can be achieved.

Congratulations to Mark O’Donovan, Shane O’Driscoll and Denise Walsh

With the above in mind, we want to say a massive congratulations to Mark O’Donovan, Shane O’Driscoll and Denise Walsh, all of whom have been performing outstandingly at the World Rowing Championships and demonstrating just how powerful us Corkonians can be!
