#Rowing: Turlough Hughes won the Dublin Sculling Ladder Time Trial. The Dublin University Boat Club man had just under a second to spare over Niall Beggan of Commercial on Saturday. One of the masters of the event, multiple winner Sean Jacob of Old Collegians, took third. The top junior was Ronan Brennan of Neptune, who finished a remarkable fourth overall. Many of the Commercial scullers wore Beggan’s picture on their tops.

 The fastest woman was Hazel O’Neill of Commercial – her closest rival was Neptune’s Claire Feerick. Commercial’s Alison Daly was the third overall of the women competing and the fastest junior woman, heading up a strong Commercial showing in this discipline.
