Lead Coaches 2018/19

Tideway Scullers School is thrilled to announce the appointment of two new Lead Coaches who will oversee the development of all of our squads.

David Mannion joins us from NUIG Galway, where he was Head Coach from 2012 to 2018, leading the club to thirty-eight national titles, including twelve National Championship record times. David won the Visitors' Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta, represented Rowing Ireland as an Under 23 and senior international, and has coached Irish crews to medals at the Under 23 World Championships. He also brings a wealth of experience as a Rowing Ireland Coach Education officer.

Kieran Clark continues his Tideway Scullers career in this new role, having led the development of the current TSS Women's Squad to three consecutive Henley Women's Regatta wins and more than thirty wins at major UK and European heads and regattas. A fellow HRR winner, with a Wyfold Challenge Cup medal, Kieran has also tasted international coaching success with the Great Britain Under 23 men's heavyweight sculling team, leading the men's double and quad to gold medals in the last two years.

We look forward to the new coaching team building on the successes of the previous years at Tideway Scullers. David will have principal responsibility for the Senior Men and Junior squads. Kieran will have principal responsibility for the Senior Women and Scullers' new Under 23 programme. David and Kieran will work with Bill Barry to further develop the successful Masters squads.
