Good Finish by Lambe and McCrohan

10th September 2010
Good Finish by Lambe and McCrohan
Ireland’s Claire Lambe and Siobhan McCrohan finished very well to take second place behind Germany in their heat of the lightweight double scull at the European Championships in Montemor-o-Velho in Portugal. Germany controlled the race from early on and took the one direct qualification spot in the A Final, but a battle developed for second place and Lambe and McCrohan beat off Italy and France for this spot.

The men’s lightweight double of Niall Kenny and Mark O’Donovan finished fifth and last in their heat, which was won by Greece, with Norway taking the second direct qualification spot for the A/B semi-finals. Both Irish crews must now compete in repechages.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
