Michael McInerney

We were paid an unexpected visit today in the club by John McInerney and his family from Pensylvania USA.He was making enquiries about his grandfather who rowed for Shannon RC at the beginning of the 20th century.Christobel and Justin went through records with John,while his extended family waited in the function room downstairs.They  found a painting of John’s grandfather, Michael McInerney and a trophy.The painting and trophy were brought down where the family got to take photos.John was quite emotional to have found information on his grandfather and before leaving promised to keep in touch.His grandfather Michael who stood 6’6″ was a Championship winning rower for Shannon RC  from 1901 to 1905.
