Northern Ireland?[edit]

Does British rowing include Northern Ireland? 82.26.0.161 (talk) 08:54, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

In its domestic rowing responsibilities, British Rowing is responsible only for England. As far as international rowing is concerned, oarsmen from Northern Ireland can choose whether to compete for Ireland or for GB. Among those who have chosen to represent GB in recent years are Alan Campbell, Richard Chambers, and Peter Chambers, all from Coleraine. Domestic rowing throughout Ireland is governed by the Irish Amateur Rowing Union. - David Biddulph (talk) 12:34, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
