#Rowing: NUIG won the much-anticipated women’s senior four final at the Irish Rowing Championships today. Trinity made the early moves, but NUIG moved before halfway, with Commercial and Cork Boat Club also coming into contention. From there the Galway club took it and won from Commercial by over three seconds. Cork were third.
#Rowing: Cork Boat Club raced well but made their exit to New Jersey crew Montclare Mounties in the Thames Cup at Henley Royal Regatta. The Americans started powerfully and took an early one-length lead. Cork stayed calm and bit chunks out of the lead as the crews entered the enclosures area. Montclare would not yield: they finished well and won by three-quarters of a length.
NUIG secured an early lead and held it until the final stages of their race in the Prince Albert for student coxed fours. Columbia University then swept past and won by one and three-quarter lengths.
Yale, with Daire Lynch in the three seat, beat Princeton in a thrilling race in the Temple Cup. Princeton, who had trailed, darted to the line and came within a canvas of winning.

#Rowing: Cork Rowing Club moved smoothly into the second round of the Thames Cup at Henley Royal Regatta with a straightforward win this morning. They took an early lead over London Rowing Club ‘A’, and extended it to one length by half way. They stayed in their rhythm and a push by their opponents made little difference; they went on to establish a clearwater lead by the enclosures.
In the Double Sculls Challenge Cup, Tiernan Oliver, rowing with Leander for the summer, teamed up with Stephen Cox to win their heat. They will meet Paul O’Donovan and Gary O’Donovan tomorrow.

#Rowing: Cork Boat Club continued the winning run by Irish crews on the first day of Henley Royal Regatta. They beat Potomac of the United States by three-quarters of a length in the Thames Cup for club eights. The race was unusual in that Cork made a fine start but were passed by Potomac, who looked like they might take control of the race. Cork’s comeback was impressive: they cut down the lead and then passed Potomac. The Irish took charge and stayed in the lead to the end.
Earlier, Neptune had won their heat of the Fawley Cup for junior quadruples.

#Rowing: Two strong senior composite crews took home the Division One quadruple titles as the action concluded late into the evening on the first day of Cork Regatta at the National Rowing Centre. The women’s final saw Margaret Cremen join Skibbereen’s Lydia Heaphy, Denise Walsh and Aoife Casey to good effect, and the men’s winners were the prospective Ireland Under-23 lightweight quad. Workmen’s and Shandon junior 18 crews were good runners up in the women’s and men’s races.
Cork Boat Club won the Division One men’s coxed four title, while Trinity took the women’s.

#Rowing: Skibbereen added four titles to their already weighty tally on the first day of the Irish Rowing Championships at the National Rowing Centre today. Paul O’Donovan won the senior single sculls and teamed up with Mark O’Donovan, Shane O’Driscoll and his brother Gary in the senior four – both were done in new record times for the course. Paul and Gary also won the senior doubles. The Skibbereen women’s four also won well, in a new best time for the course.
NUIG also took four titles: the men’s intermediate coxed four and club eight and the women’s club coxed four and novice coxed quadruple.
Cork Boat Club proved best in the women’s intermediate eight and also won perhaps the best race of the day: Barry O’Flynn was severely tested by Jack Dorney in the junior single sculls but fought back after being passed and won by a length.
The Old Collegians victory in the women’s senior double was straightforward: Sanita Puspure and Claire Lambe were by far the best crew.
This was the last final of the day, while UCC had won the first, taking the men’s novice coxed quadruple.
Neptune and St Joseph’s tried to rein them in, but the men’s junior eights final was a surprsingly straightforward affair for winners Enniskillen, who also won the women’s junior four. Lee’s Margaret Cremen and Aoife Lynch were also in control in the women’s junior double, as were Hannah Scott and Katie Shirlow in the intermediate pair.

UCD won the men’s eights by holding off NUIG. The finish was close, but UCD had led down the course and refused to yield. Neptune took the junior 18 honours by holding off St Joseph’s of Galway in the B Final.
