#WorldJuniorRowing: Ireland had to settle for fifth place in the C Final, 17th overall, in the women’s quadruple sculls at the World Junior Rowing Championships at Trakai in Lithuania today. The crew of Fiona Murtagh, Jasmine English, Erin Barry and Bernadette Walsh had done well to make it through the C/D semi-finals and were very much in touch in the early stages, but by 750 metres they had dropped to the back of the field, and they stayed in fifth until the finish of a race won by Estonia.

#WorldJuniorRowing: Ireland’s quaduple scull of Conor Carmody, John Mitchell, David O’Malley and Paddy Hegarty raced a good race to finish third in their C/D Semi-Final and qualify for the C Final at the World Junior Rowing Championships in Trakai in Lithuania this morning. Romania were virtually unchallenged as leaders through this race, with the Ukraine, Ireland and Russia disputing the second and third qualification places. In the final quarter Ireland took on and beat the Russians to secure third.

The C/D semi-final for the Ireland men’s double of Jack Casey and Andy Harrington had been a very similar race, but Ireland came out at the wrong end of the result. France led all the way down the course, with Ireland, Russia and Bulgaria vying for second and third. Ireland moved into second by the third quarter but the United States challenged strongly over the final half and engaged in a battle with Russia. As Bulgaria faded, Russia and the United States took second and third, while Ireland fell back to fourth.

#WorldJuniorRowing: The Ireland women’s double scull of Bridget Jacques and Hilary Shinnick had to settle for second place and a slot in a repechage at the World Junior Championships in Trakai in Lithuania today. The very promising crew were leading their heat with about 100 metres to go and on course for direct qualification for the semi-finals when they clipped a buoy and temporarily lost control of an oar. Greece, who were less than a length down, came through and won by 3.73 seconds.

The Ireland men’s double of Andy Harrington and Jack Casey also finished second in their heat, to progress to their quarter-final, while the men’s quadruple finished fourth in a race in which all the crews except the winners, the Czech Republic, move on to the repechages.

The Ireland women’s quadruple finished fourth in their heat. South Africa and the Czech Republic took charge early on and took the two direct qualification places for the semi-final. Sweden and Ireland were third and fourth down the course and finished well behind. India did not compete.
