Australia Deny Ireland a Final Place

25th August 2009
Australia Deny Ireland a Final Place
Ireland’s top adaptive crew, the legs, trunk and arms coxed four, were just one place off qualification for the A Final at the World Championships in Poznan in Poland this morning. In a repechage which was won comfortably by Canada, Ireland disputed the second of the two qualification places but could not head Australia and were three seconds behind them at the finish. The trunks and arms double scull of Vincent Culhane and Karen Cromie are also set for Friday’s B Finals. They finished fourth in their repechage.

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.

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.
