#Rowing: Rowing Ireland has announced two new appointments to the high performance coaching team.
Dominic Casey, who coached Paul and Gary O’Donovan to silver in Rio while working on a temporary basis, becomes a full time coach for the four years to Tokyo 2020. In his new role as High Performance Coach, Dominic Casey will oversee and lead the development of the lightweight group.
Casey said: “I am really looking forward to working with our group of talented lightweights and producing further international success.”
Sean Casey also joins the high performance coaching team and will be tasked with heavyweight rowing development.
Morten Espersen, High Performance Director, said: “Sean’s position is a temporary appointment until our final funding figures from Sport Ireland are confirmed early in 2017 but we believe Sean’s appointment is critical to lead the development of our heavyweights.”
