Last Saturday’s Lift-in was a vital exercise along the road to recovery for us as a Club – but also for Dun Laoghaire Rathdown as a borough.
A broad section of our membership contributed greatly to making this Covid Lift-In a success – some by staying away and many by helping with the detailed planning for the day, communicating with members and then undertaking the actual Lift-In.
No one played a greater role than Alan Turner, who besides leading the Lift-In as Boathouse Captain is also Covid19 Compliance Officer for the Club. That is besides reopening a motor dealership earlier in the week! Olivier and the boathouse staff, Stephen, Wayne and Sam ensured everyone knew well in advance of the plan and protocols, while the 20 volunteers’ members from a number of families effected the Lift-In. To the Shanahan Family, the Horgan Ryan Family, The Meldon Family, the Quinn family, the Byrne family and others, thank you most sincerely.
They assembled at 5.30 am and stayed on station until the last boats dropped safely into the water at 4pm.
