Irish Rowing Club (PIRC) is comprised of men and women who
enjoy both the cultural and competitive aspects of this sport.
There are no age restrictions for rowers and many fine rowers
have started rowing in their mid- to late teens or have "retired"
from rowing in their 60's.
In March the
PIRC hosts its annual fundraiser and participates in the St.
Patrick's Day Parade in Downtown Pittsburgh. PIRC has been
featured in a Gaelic Documentary as well as various articles
in the Pittsburgh
Post-Gazette. The St. Brendan's Cup Regatta is held annually
The PIRC encourages
folks who are interested in participating in this unique cultural
sport to spend some time watching and then give it a try.
The PIRC website is also availabe to those interested in becoming
sponsors. We look forward to seeing you at the docks and visit
our site often!
Here is another
Post-Gazette article from July, 2009 which gives a quick
summary of the history of the club and a couple of nice pictures
from an evening practice at the marina.
