Pot hunters in rowing parlance were those who went to regattas just to win the cups with no credible opposition. Probably an insult to this eight who had a very successful season with three magnificent trophies to display for their efforts! Does any other sport have such ornate and magnificent trophies as rowing? In those days novices were known as maidens though none of these lads look in any way maidenly. Who were they, whom did they represent and what was the silverware awarded for?

Coincidentally just now Irish and other nations crews are competing at all age levels including the “Home” internationals, the World championships and very soon the “Coupe de Jeunesse”! Good luck and best wishes to all concerned.
