Cork Boat Club's sporting greats have been honoured by their club in a boat-naming ceremony.
The (Ray) Connolly IV, the John McCarthy, the Martin Kilbane and the Jer Field, will cut through the water in a quest for Cork Boat Club medals, to add to the club's already impressive haul.
Members past and present and families gathered at the clubhouse in Blackrock Village, where they celebrated Ray, John, Martin and Jer, and launched their new boats.
All four have distinguished rowing and coaching careers with Cork Boat Club and Ireland.
The new fleet comprises two fours, and two pairs/doubles.
