Inter Joy For Trinity and University of Limerick

University of Limerick fought of a strong challenge by Galway Rowing Club to take the Intermediate Eight title at the National Championships at the National Rowing Centre in Cork by one length. 

Trinity won the women’s intermediate eights title. In a four-boat race their closest challengers were the junior crew from Portora, who overlapped them for much of the course. Trinity, coxed by club captain Rachel Nazarin, powered through the line to win by a length.

In the third Championship event of the morning session, the women’s junior 18 coxless four, Skibbereen had a very impressive win.
