The Cork Sculling Ladder is in its 50th year, having been established in 1972 to provide opportunities for competitive racing for men and women scullers on the River Lee. The 49th Cork Sculling Ladder is sponsored by Argos Fire & Safety, a Cork business located at the Kinsale Road Commercial Centre, which has been event sponsor for a number of years now.
