Published in Rower of Month

The Afloat Rowers of the Month for September are the Skibbereen men’s senior quadruple of Richard Coakley, Gearoid Murphy, Mark O’Donovan and Justin Ryan. The crew won the best race of the National Championships, beating a UCD/St Michael’s composite by .4 of a second to take the title. It has been a terrific year for O’Donovan and Ryan on the international stage as well. They made up half of the Ireland quadruple which took silver at the World Under-23 Championships in Belarus in July.

The senior women’s double scull provided a highlight of the morning session at the National Rowing Championships in the NRC in Cork today. Three boats finished in quick succession, but Sanita Puspure and Siobhan Jacob of Old Collegians were in control, holding off the challenge of Eimear and Joanne Moran of Offaly and Siobhan McCrohan and Lisa Dilleen of Tribesmen.

The senior men’s double was a much tamer affair, with Niall Kenny and Mark O’Donovan well ahead of the St Michael’s crew of Sam Lynch and Peter Hanily at the finish.

Turlough Hughes had to battle to win the men’s junior single scull. The giant King’s Hospital man hunted down and passed Shane O’Driscoll of Skibbereen in the third quarter of the race, but he had just two seconds to spare at the finish.

Skibbereen took the women’s junior single title, through Christine Fitzgerald, and the men’s intermediate double, and Alice O’Sullivan of University of Limerick won the women’s novice single scull.

Ireland’s young lightweight women’s double scull came very close to taking a medal at the European Rowing Championships in Portugal today. Greece were totally dominant in the A Final in Montemor-o-Velho, but Ireland’s Siobhan McCrohan (23) and Claire Lambe (20) looked set for at least a bronze medal until a late push by Germany. The German crew then caught a crab, and Poland clinched second, but as the Germans made a fine recovery the Irish could not regain their third place.

Earlier, Niall Kenny and Mark O’Donovan had finished fourth in the B Final of the men’s lightweight double scull, 10th overall.

Ireland’s Siobhan McCrohan (23) and Claire Lambe (20) will compete in the A Final of the European Championships in Montemor-o-Velho in Portugal tomorrow. To qualify the Irish lightweight double scull needed to finish in the top two of their repechage this morning, and the Tribesmen/UCD combination duly obliged. They finished second to Poland, the silver medallists from last year’s World Championships, who led all the way down the course. McCrohan and Lambe stayed in touch all through and saw off a late challenge by Sweden.

The men’s lightweight double of Mark O’Donovan and Niall Kenny finished fifth in their A/B Semi-Final. The race had a surprising conclusion, as Slovenia ousted Greece to join Italy and France in the A Final, but the Ireland crew were not contenders and will compete in tomorrow’s B Final.
