Robert Byrne was given a huge wel­come home in the Bray Row­ing Club fol­low­ing his suc­cess­ful row across the At­lantic Ocean from Africa to Bar­ba­dos. He was in a team of six, and they broke two world records. Robert is a big strong lad, and he now has, and for some­time into the fu­ture a big grin when­ever he thinks of how this ad­ven­ture made a dream come through. What comes next? Well Robert will ad­vise and en­cour­age oth­ers about how to re­alise their hopes of do­ing some­thing sim­i­lar. Well done to Robert and team mates.
