Lehane Environmental was delighted to support Skibbereen Rowing Club with the permitted collection, transportation and disposal of asbestos from the old roof on the rowing club.

Skibbereen Rowing Club was founded in 1970 by three Skibbereen men with a passion for rowing- Danny Murphy, Donnie Fitzgerald and Richard Hosford. This enthusiasm and passion has continued and now the club has won 170 national titles and has 86 athletes representing Ireland at both junior and senior levels. Athletes from Skibbereen Rowing club have since gone on to perform and win medals at both Olympic in Rio 2016 and World championships in 2016 2017 and 2018.
