Club Clean-up Day 16th February 2019

Deirdre Shanahan Marshalled the club members and organised a very productive clean up day on the 16th February. After a big de-clutter the club is looking spick and span and in great shape for up and coming events, including Cork Head.
 Deirdre and Teresita double check the roster and plan for the day.

Somebody must do the Health and Safety job!!! Will Anne catch Rob if he falls?
After years of education Dermot Sheehan has finally found his true vocation in life. Scrubbing the deck!!!
 Undercover and weed! Always on the case... we know its you Declan!!!
Great to see more Sweeping in the Club! Hugh O'Donnell and David O'Carroll hard at it in the Sculling shed.
The landscaping gang also had time to lean on their shovels. Tony Lee, Austin Leonard and Eoin Fleming
Barry O'Sullivan, David O'Carroll and Austin Leonard loading the trailer... Just hope the hoarding coaches don't start taking things out again.
Loads of officials to supervise the work.

Quote of the Day must go to Deirdre who said "Where have all my MEN gone!!!!"
She is also in negotiations with Netflix about her 'Club Clean Up' reality show!!!
Coming soon to a club near you.

Great Job Deirdre and team!!
