#Rowing: The Ireland women’s four which took silver at the World Under-23 Championships in Florida are the Afloat Rowers of the Month for July.
It was a month of outstanding achievements for Ireland rowers. The men’s double of Philip Doyle and Ronan Byrne and the lightweight double of Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy both took silver medals at the World Cup regatta in Rotterdam – Paul O’Donovan fishing a stroke coach from the water and immediately getting back to racing. Gary O’Donovan took bronze in the lightweight single sculls.
The Irish Championships was the biggest ever, featuring the emergence of new young crews such as junior single sculls champion Holly Davis, and capped off with wins in the women’s senior eight for NUIG/Castleconnell and the men’s senior eight for UCD. Davis (14) went on to win gold in the junior single sculls the Home International Regatta, and the men’s junior eight, pair and quadruple also won gold.
Three Irish crews – UCD, Commercial and Skibbereen’s Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Dricoll – reached semi-finals at Henley Royal Regatta.
The World Under-23 Championships in Sarasota Bradenton saw the men’s coxed four take seventh, the lightweight women’s double fourth, and the lightweight men’s quadruple take a bronze medal.
The achievement of the women’s under-23 four of Claire Feerick (Neptune), Eimear Lambe (UCD), Tara Hanlon (UCC) and Emily Hegarty (UCC) was historic. They became the first Ireland women’s crew in a sweep event to take a medal at a World Championships.
They are the Afloat Rowers of the Month.

#Rowing: Ireland’s Claire Feerick and Eimear Lambe finished third in their heat of the women’s pair at the World Cup Regatta in Poznan in Poland this morning.

They were marginal leaders through the 1,000 metres and the 1500 metres, after which China Two took over. Italy Two passed them coming up to the line to take top spot.

#Rowing: Turlough Hughes won the Dublin Sculling Ladder Time Trial. The Dublin University Boat Club man had just under a second to spare over Niall Beggan of Commercial on Saturday. One of the masters of the event, multiple winner Sean Jacob of Old Collegians, took third. The top junior was Ronan Brennan of Neptune, who finished a remarkable fourth overall. Many of the Commercial scullers wore Beggan’s picture on their tops.
The fastest woman was Hazel O’Neill of Commercial – her closest rival was Neptune’s Claire Feerick. Commercial’s Alison Daly was the third overall of the women competing and the fastest junior woman, heading up a strong Commercial showing in this discipline.
Dublin Sculling Ladder Time Trial, Islandbridge, Saturday (Selected Results)
1 T Hughes (Trinity) 6 minutes 31.67 secs (Overall Winner), 2 N Beggan (Commercial) 6:32.65, 3 S Jacob (Old Collegians) 6:40.85; 4 R Brennan (Neptune) 6:41.66 (Fastest Junior)
1 H O’Neill (Commercial) 7:23.47 (Fastest Woman), 2 C Feerick (Neptune) 7:24.6, 3 A Daly (Commercial) Fastest Junior Woman.
#Rowing: Neptune’s Club One eight came through two rounds to qualify for Saturday’s action in the Neptune Regatta at Islandbridge on Friday. They beat Commercial A in the first round and then had just a canvas to spare over a Trinity crew which had beaten UCD A by three feet in the first round. The strong flow made conditions difficult, especially for inexperienced rowers, but the racing programme went ahead.
In the intermediate single sculls, Claire Feerick of the host club qualified for the final and Tristan Orlic won his round of the junior 16 single.
