#Rowing: Ireland’s four boats will again appear in A Finals today at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Hazewinkel, Belgium. Two Ireland crews won their heats this morning and one finished second. The women’s pair of Gill McGirr and Eliza O’Reilly have a straight final.

 Georgia O’Brien claimed victory in her heat by just over a second from Austria’s Alexandra Breschan, with Hungary taking the third qualification place, much further back.

 The Ireland Quadruple also won. Poland and the Czech Republic took the second and third qualification spots behind the Ireland crew of Barry O’Flynn, Matt Dundon, Jack Keating and James Quinlan. In a tight finish, France took fourth and missed out by less than a second.

 The Ireland four of Aaron Johnston, Ross Corrigan, Barry Connolly and Nathan Timoney finished second in their heat, just ahead of Belgium. Britain took first.
