Young Ireland Crew Views Summit Up Close

10th July 2010
Young Ireland Crew Views Summit Up Close

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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
