#Rowing: Skibbereen took two titles and NUIG took three from the second set of finals on the third day of the Irish Rowing Championships at the National Rowing Centre.

Gary O’Donovan and Denise Walsh had very easy wins in the bright sunshine in the finals of the lightweight single sculls. NUIG’s victories – which bring them to eight so far – came in the men’s intermediate pair, where they were tested by Shandon; the women’s intermediate coxed four and the men’s club coxed four.

Eliza O’Reilly and Gill McGirr have been the best junior pair in the country this year and the Fermoy crew proved it with their convincing win. Daire Lynch was similarly emphatic as he took the intermediate single sculls title for Clonmel.

#Rowing: NUIG carried off the men’s and women’s senior eights at the Lough Rynn Regatta in Leitrim today. Enniskillen, the former Portora, won the men’s and women’s junior 18 titles. While the morning session had run off on time and with little disruption, the weather changed for the worse in the afternoon, with squalls and bouts of heavy rain. The programme ran late and junior 15 and junior 16 events were cancelled.

A composite crew from UCC and Shandon won the men’s senior double, while the Three Castles duo of Rory Quinn and Oisin Clune of Three Castles won the junior double.

#IrishRowingChampionships: Alan Martin won his eighth senior fours title as Gráinne Mhaol laid down a marker for the senior eights on the first day of the the Irish Rowing Championships in Cork today. The experienced crew of Martin, Dave Mannion, Cormac Folan and James Wall were quickly joined by another Gráinne Mhaol winner in Niall Kenny, taking his second successive title in the lightweight single sculls.

Trinity brought their tally of wins up to three when the men’s novice eight and women’s intermediate eight added to the earlier win by the women’s intermediate pair. Three Castles matched their surprise win in the men’s senior double with a more predictable victory in the women’s double by Eimear Moran and Helen Walshe.

Skibbereen’s junior women’s four gave them their only Championship win of the day, while St Joseph’s of Galway took the junior men’s eight – their third in-a-row.
