Carlow Best in Photo Finish

10th July 2009

Carlow’s men’s quadruple scull won a fantastically close final by just a tenth of a second from University of Limerick on the first day of the National Rowing Championships in Cork. The men’s senior four provided the expected win for NUIG, and Dave Heffernan gave Shandon a rare win, in the men’s lightweight single scull.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
