#Rowing: Here is the Trinity eight which won the Ladies Plate at Henley Royal Regatta in 1977 ‘rowing over’ 40 years later. The current captain of Dublin University Boat Club, Cian Flynn, coxed the crew on Saturday as a stand-in for Jarlath Magee, who could not travel.
Though it was a joyous commemoration, the boat was named ‘Robin Tamplin’ to honour the senior coach, who sadly died earlier this year.
There was a dinner for the crew and their families afterwards and the story telling and singing went on late into the night.
