The sports club promotes Junior rowing competitions for kids under 18 as well as Adult competitions in the various classifications of Novice, Intermediate, Senior and Veteran. The club’s colours are white, azure blue and myrtle green.
As the name suggests, Commercial Rowing Club’s facilities are dedicated to rowing. Their boathouse can be found at Islandbridge, the perfect location because it allows for year-round rowing in the upper Liffey’s protected waters. The Dublin, Ireland club also has shared access to a boathouse located on Blessington Lake in Wicklow.
As one of Ireland’s largest and longest-running rowing clubs, Commercial has been achieving success for more than 150 years in both National and International men’s and women’s competitions. With brand new state-of-the-art equipment at its facilities on the River Liffey’s banks at Islandbridge, the club offers lessons, coaching, and competitive rowing to members of all ages. Commercial Rowing Club is eager for rowing enthusiasts to join in as new members.
Commercial Rowing Club of Dublin, Ireland was originally founded in 1856, which makes it one of the oldest clubs in all of Ireland. The name “Commercial” dates back to a distant time when all but university clubs were identified as “commercial.” Its first members were drawn from Dublin’s commercial district and were made up of shopkeepers, bankers and tailors along Grafton Street and Henry Street. Many of the original members worked at Clerys, which was founded in 1853 (only three years earlier). In the early 1880s, the Amateur Rowing Association was established and Commercial was part of the group that formed it. Unfortunately, the Association didn’t last long.
The boathouse at that time was in Ringsend. Commercial Rowing Clubs were also organized in Belfast and Galway, drawing their membership from similar sources. The club’s membership continued to be primarily made up of bankers, shopkeepers and tailors, until things started changing in the 1950s.
Commercial Rowing Club began having difficulties as the 20th Century began, most likely due to Ringsend being so isolated. Other clubs were moving inland, leaving Commercial behind and out of touch. To avoid dealing with the changing tides as well as bustling port traffic, in 1942 the club moved upstream to Islandbridge where the waters were much more peaceful. The Dublin, Ireland club had an opportunity to move into the premises of what had been the Dublin Rowing Club after it became insolvent. Today Commercial Rowing Club is a vibrant and influential part of the worldwide rowing community.
