NUIG retained their senior eights title at the National Championships in Farran Wood in Cork with an on-the-line victory over Queen’s University which was remarkably similar to their win last year.

The two crews were locked together in the closing stages and a photo finish was needed to separate them. The official verdict was three feet.

The women’s senior eight crown also produced an extraordinary result: a crew formed just for  the Championships won – and won well. Former and current internationals Laura D’Urso, Monika Dukarska and Sinead Jennings were all part of the ‘super eight’ which had almost four seconds to spare over the Old Collegians/UCD composite in second. Favourites Commercial were third.

In the last Championship finals of the day, Shannon won the men's novice coxed four and Queen's A the women's novice coxed four.

There was controversy in the semi-finals of the men's senior eights at the National Rowing Championships in Cork.

The University of Limerick cox failed to weigh in for the second semi-final, and the crew was disqualified. 

This left only three crews in the race: Muckross, NUIG and St Michael’s.

One crew could not make it through to the final, and St Michael’s lost out in a race won by Muckross, with NUIG taking the second place in the final.

In the other semi-final, Queen’s qualified two crews, and they were joined by a composite crew from  Commercial, UCD and Old Collegians.

The Ireland under-23 lightweight quadruple scull finished sixth in their A Final at the World Cup in Lucerne. France made the pace for much of the race, but it was World Champions Italy who took gold. Germany took silver and France bronze.

The Ireland crew, formed in the run-up to this event, were a little off the pace all through. They will have gained invaluable experience from competing at this level, said Ireland performance director Martin McElroy.

McCrohan Sixth in A Final

Siobhan McCrohan finished sixth in the A Final of the lightweight single scull at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne. The 23-year-old did well in the early stages and was second at 500 metres.

Alexandra Tsiavou of Greece, who led for most of the 2,000 metres, was pushed into silver medal position by Marie-Louise Draeger of Germany. Fabiana Beltrame of Brazil took the bronze medal.

Siobhan McCrohan and the lightweight men’s quadruple scull grabbed A Final spots this morning at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne.

McCrohan (23) raced into the final of the lightweight single scull, taking second place to Alexandra Tsiavou of Greece in the semi-final, where three boats go through. McCrohan and Erika Bello of Italy disputed second for much of the race. In the final 500 metres, as Bello and Eri Wakai of Japan made their charges, McCrohan held on to take a clear second ahead of the Italian.

The repechage of the lightweight quadruple scull was a mad dash as four crews from six tried to make it through to the A Final. Denmark moved into pole position early, but Ireland, Brazil and two German crews were all in a fight for the three other places. The Irish crew of Niall Kenny, Michael Maher, Mark O’Donovan and Justin Ryan did well to push through to third at the end, with the two German crews taking the other qualification places.

“You make a mistake in a race like that and it’s all over,” said Ireland performance director Martin McElroy. “They did a really good job.”

 He added: "Siobhan did what she needed to do. Two A Finals is a a good start."

Irish crews took part in four competitive C Finals. The men’s open and lightweight pairs both finished third, placing them 15th overall. Sanita Puspure in the women’s single finished fourth (16th) and the lightweight women’s double sixth (18th). Cathal Moynihan took fourth in this D Final of the lightweight single scull (22nd).

Siobhan McCrohan came third in her quarter-final of the lightweight single scull at the World Cup in Lucerne, securing a place in the semi-finals. The Galway woman led early on, but Erika Bello of Italy and Fabiana Beltrame of Brazil passed her in the second half of the race.

The lightweight men’s pair of Peter Hanily and Anthony English, an under-23 crew, came very close to landing a place in the A/B semi-finals. Even in the early stages of this repechage Canada and Italy were in charge of the first two qualification places. Ireland led a battle for third until the closing stages, when they were pipped by Hong Kong.

Cathal Moynihan finished last in his quarter-final of the lightweight men’s single scull and the men’s pair of Cormac Folan and Sean Jacob were fifth in their repechage. Both crews missed out on A/B semi-Finals.

Sarah Dolan and Claire Lambe saw Poland and China claim the two semi-final places in the repechages of the lightweight double scull. The Irish were a close-up fourth behind Germany in third.
