Shannon Rowing Club’s landmark building in Limerick City is now equipped with the best in high speed connectivity courtesy of Ripplecom.
The iconic Shannon Rowing Club premises on Sarsfield Bridge leads a double life. Since the building was commissioned in 1902 it has served, first and foremost, as a clubhouse for the city’s oldest rowing club.
However, an unbeatable location with expansive views of King John’s Castle and St Mary’s Cathedral, means the building has become a popular location for private events and corporate functions. Rock band, The Coronas, even choose the clubhouse as the location for a top-secret gig earlier this month.
This busy calendar means the club needed a fast and reliable internet connection and Raheen-based telecommunications firm, Ripplecom, was happy to help.
Row ‘n surf
Coming on board with a sponsored service, Ripplecom installed a high-capacity connection along with access points throughout the building. Club members and event attendees alike will now enjoy free access to high-speed internet, allowing them to get online with ease. The connection includes Ripplecom’s Orion autofailover which means the club will have maximum uptime, no matter what is going on around them.
Supporting the local business community
Commenting on the installation, Ripplecom Managing Director, John McDonnell, said that “Ripplecom is proud to be a part of the business community in Limerick. This is only a small application of our network capabilities, but we are delighted to help out a local institution like Shannon Rowing Club,”

What impressed me most, was the proactive approach of the Ripplecom team to listen and quickly understand our business requirements and then, structure a solution that was tailored specifically for us. The Ripplecom staff including the sales, engineering and support teams were skilled and competent and delivered a telephony solution that met the needs of our business. At all times during the procurement process, it was more like the development of a long term business to business relationship, rather than a one-off transactional event. We look forward to growing this business to business relationship as each of our businesses grow in the future.
Ripplecom's connectivity solutions have helped us roll out a number of initiatives concerning internet, mobile and cloud technologies. We would now view Ripplecom as a key enabler to our business and a key strategic partner with respect to our long term ICT strategy.
Ripplecom provided a dedicated point to point licensed radio link to our remote North Cork location. The project management and flow of information throughout the installation process was extremely professional and efficient. This dedicated link is essential to the growth of our business and the running of our key day to day applications, e.g. phones, call centre, data, truck tracking and billing.
