Cookstown is a family favourite in homes across Northern Ireland and supporting local clubs across the province is our way of saying thank you for choosing Cookstown. I would like to take this opportunity to wish Bann Rowing Club every success in the future and we look forward to supporting them over the next three years.” Mrs. Gillian Chambers had flown straight back from the Rowing World Cup in Bled, Slovania where both her sons had excelled, to officially name “The Sizzler” .
