Do You Remember ... THE UCG BOAT CLUB?

A sign of the summer at UCG in the 1970s was the appearance of boats on the Eglinton Canal. Many a student couple spent a romantic afternoon rowing up the River Corrib to picnic on some grassy shore.

The student in the foreground was Anthony Ryan, a 2nd year commerce student when this photograph was taken in summer 1976. Anthony is of course from the well known Anthony Ryan Fashions store in Shop Street.
