Community spirit was alive and well on the River Liffey this week as Stella Maris Rowing Club joined Ringsend's 14th annual May Day Parade in Dublin City last Monday.

A marching band and appearances from various clubs, organisations, and members of the wider community were involved in the parade, including Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club.

It was a busy start to the coastal rowing season for the Stella Maris rowers at the Dublin Port-based club with an entry in the 15.4km row in the offshore double division at Clogherhead Strand in the Boyne boat race last weekend. 

The club was also involved with the launch of three Currachs on the river, as Afloat reported here. Team
