Thank you...

I would like to say a huge thanks to all who showed up yesterday for the guard of honour for Monty (Jim). It was an outstanding gathering of support for him and hugely appreciated by the family.

Thanks again, you all did the club proud.

SMRC President.


Jim Ahern R.I.P.

It was with great shock and sadness that we learnt of the untimely passing of our Vice President yesterday (Saturday 23rd).

Jim was the husband of our Captain Antoinette and brother of our coach Niall Ahern. Jim started rowing for the club as a schoolboy. His greatest rowing achievement however was stroking the 1984 Intermediate Championship winning eight. In recent years he was ever present in the club as Captain, coach and helping out wherever he was needed. He will be sadly missed by his wife Antoinette, son David and daughters Ellen and Emily as well as his large circle of family and friends to whom we extend our sincere condolences.

Funeral arrangements to follow.
