Limerick to have Ireland’s only indoor rowing centre

Work on Ireland’s first indoor Rowing centre has begun out in The university of Limerick.

From Ireland Online,
The unique facility will be Ireland's only indoor Rowing 'Tank' where various weather and water conditions will be simulated. It will accommodate up to 16 rowers at a time in training.The total area of the Boathouse is 1900 square meters.

As well as housing the UL Rowing Club, Kayak Club, Mountain Bike Club and Sub Aqua Club the building will include a launch jetty, pontoon and a café area on the river bank which will be open to the public.
The new facility is tagged at a hefty €4.3m and surprisingly this report states that the project has been “largely funded by the university's students”

Whatever happened to the poor student then?
