Limerick city’s oldest rowing club is set to travel back in time this weekend for a special fund raising event.

Flares, platforms, wigs and disco balls are set to feature prominently at the iconic Shannon Rowing club on Sarsfield Bridge for a special 70’s-themed night on Saturday.

The event is being run by iSalsaLive, begins at 9pm and in true 70’s style will continue until the early hours of Sunday morning.

Cathriona Murphy of iSalsaLive says she hopes to see plenty of people on the dance floor showing off their salsa moves and 70’s groove.

All of the monies raised on the night will go towards works to restore parts of the historic building, which was founded by Sir Peter Tait in 1866.

Entry on the night is €10 but for those who get into the spirit and dress up in 70’s attire, the price is €8.

According to the organisers, there will be plenty of neon lights at Saturday’s event with the playlist including everything from the Bee-Gees to Le Chic.

Tickets will be available on the door on the night.
