UCD Men's Senior Eight the Afloat Rowers of the Month

The Afloat Rowers of the Month for July are the UCD men’s senior eight which brought back the Big Pot to the college for the first time since 1973 at the National Rowing Championships. The big crew of Simon Craven, Peter Grogan, Colm Pierce (the club captain), David Neale, Finbar Manning, Sean Jacob, Gearoid Duane and stroke Tom Doyle were coxed by Jenny Lynch and coached by Pat McDonagh. They were clear winners over NUIG/Grainne Mhaol on the day and are worthy winners of the Afloat Rowers of the Month.

Rower of the Month awards: The judging panel is made up of Liam Gorman, rowing correspondent of The Irish Times, President of Rowing Ireland Anthony Dooley and David O'Brien, Editor of Afloat magazine. Monthly awards for achievements during the year will appear on afloat.ie and the overall national award will be presented to the person or crew who, in the judges' opinion, achieved the most notable results in, or made the most significant contribution to rowing during 2011. Keep a monthly eye on progress and watch our 2011 champions list grow.

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.
