ROWING: Under-23 athlete Justin Ryan won the men’s A Final of the single sculls at the Irish Assessment Regatta at the National Rowing Centre in Cork. Fellow lightweights Michael Maher and Justin Ryan were second and third.

Sanita Puspure was dominant in the women’s single, where surprise packet Bridget Jacques, who is just 17, took second.

Sean O’Connor and Eddie Mullarkey of NUIG, an under-23 crew, beat Bann juniors Chris Black and Joel Cassells into second in the men’s pair. The Bann pair have not competed this season as Black has had glandular fever.

The A Final of the women’s pair, an all-junior affair, was won by Hanna McCarthy and Hanna O’Sullivan of St Michael’s after a terrific battle to the line with Brooke Edgar and Emily Hutchinson of Bann.

ROWING: Niall Kenny of UCC headed up a group of lightweight men at the top of the rankings after the 5,000 metre time trial at the second National Assessment in Newry. The top lightweight woman, Siobhan McCrohan also impressed – her percentage of projected world best time was 84.7 to Kenny’s 84.9. The fastest woman of the day was under-23 heavyweight Lisa Dilleen, and the junior women and men set a high standard, with Bridget Jacques and Andrew Griffin topping their classes. Sanita Puspure (ill) and Holly Nixon (injured) could not compete and Shane O’Driscoll and Paul O’Donovan missed out because of a bereavement.

Kate O'Brien of St Michael's in Limerick recorded an outstanding time for a junior woman in the ergometer (rowing machine) test of six minutes 58 seconds at the second Natioinal Assessment at Newry today. Only one other woman, under-23 athlete Lisa Dilleen, with 6:49.2 bettered the young Limerick competitor's time. Sanita Puspure, who was ill, was a noticeable absentee, but she hopes to soon bounce back from the viral infection which prevented her taking part. Dave Neale was the fastest man, and the strong lightweight men's group performed well. Shane O'Driscoll had to withdraw due a family bereavement.

Coastal Notes Coastal Notes covers a broad spectrum of stories, events and developments in which some can be quirky and local in nature, while other stories are of national importance and are on-going, but whatever they are about, they need to be told.

Stories can be diverse and they can be influential, albeit some are more subtle than others in nature, while other events can be immediately felt. No more so felt, is firstly to those living along the coastal rim and rural isolated communities. Here the impact poses is increased to those directly linked with the sea, where daily lives are made from earning an income ashore and within coastal waters.

The topics in Coastal Notes can also be about the rare finding of sea-life creatures, a historic shipwreck lost to the passage of time and which has yet many a secret to tell. A trawler's net caught hauling more than fish but cannon balls dating to the Napoleonic era.

Also focusing the attention of Coastal Notes, are the maritime museums which are of national importance to maintaining access and knowledge of historical exhibits for future generations.

Equally to keep an eye on the present day, with activities of existing and planned projects in the pipeline from the wind and wave renewables sector and those of the energy exploration industry.

In addition Coastal Notes has many more angles to cover, be it the weekend boat leisure user taking a sedate cruise off a long straight beach on the coast beach and making a friend with a feathered companion along the way.

In complete contrast is to those who harvest the sea, using small boats based in harbours where infrastructure and safety poses an issue, before they set off to ply their trade at the foot of our highest sea cliffs along the rugged wild western seaboard.

It's all there, as Coastal Notes tells the stories that are arguably as varied to the environment from which they came from and indeed which shape people's interaction with the surrounding environment that is the natural world and our relationship with the sea.
