Ireland’s lightweight quadruple scull qualified for the A Final of the Under-23 World Championships in Brest in Belarus early this morning. France set the early pace, but Ireland passed them before 1500 metres and won the race from Britain, with France holding off a late charge by Switzerland to take third and secure a place in  tomorrow’s final.

The Ireland women’s lightweight double scull had a dramatic semi-final, but not in the way they would have liked. Claire Lambe and Sarah Dolan were, according to race commentary, given a yellow card and the race had to be delayed. When it finally was run, Ireland got stuck in fourth and Greece, New Zealand and Britain took the A Final places.

The Ireland lightweight pair also finished fourth in their semi-final. They held third at 1500 metres, behind France and Italy. In the final quarter Hungary ousted the Irish from a qualification spot, and finished so quickly they finished second behind France, with Italy third.

Lisa Dilleen is also set to compete in the B Final tomorrow. By half way the Galway woman, who had come through an energy-sapping repechage, was off the pace of a semi-final won by Norway’s Tale Gjoertz. Dilleen finished sixth.

Lisa Dilleen produced a terrific performance to finish third in her repechage and qualify for the A/B semi-finals of the women’s single scull at the World Under-23 Championships at Brest in Belarus.

The Galway woman moved into third place just before halfway, but to hold it she had to fight off the challenge of Russia’s Mayya Reznikova, who had drawn level by 1750 metres.

The Czech Republic’s Denisa Cvancarova won, with Britain’s Rosamund Bradbury second. Dilleen was .15 of a second ahead of Reznikova in third.

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.

Bann of Coleraine had a fine victory at the National Rowing Championships in Cork in the junior 18 eights. Skibbereen, who had a very impressive semi-final win, were second.

Portora won the women’s junior 18 eight by a length from St Michael’s of Limerick, who challenged them in the closing stages.

Skibbereen looked odds-on to win the women’s intermediate coxed four, but Cork Boat Club sprung a surprise.

University of Limerick had a surprisingly big margin over Galway Rowing Club in their win in the men’s intermediate coxed four, with half a length of clear water as they came to the line.
