The beautiful location of Dunlewey Lake at Ionad Cois Locha was the venue on Sunday last for the third Regatta of the Donegal rowing season.

Over 40 teams competed on a day when Donegal were playing in Clones and the Donegal International Rally was taking place close by. There was also a very large spectator attendance. This is an indication of how rowing, as a competitive and spectator sport, is growing in Donegal. With Errigle as a backdrop for this event, teams battled it out across 9 categories.
