#ROWING: The Ireland senior team for the Home International Regatta in Strathclyde in Scotland on July 25th has been named. Justin Ryan, who was a senior Ireland international in 2013, will compete in the lightweight single sculls. The selection was based on performances at Cork Regatta, but the times used were from the manual system, as there were problems with the automatic system. The athlete levy will be €400.
