Two foreign oarsmen who are studying at the University of Limerick, Rob Weitemeyer from Canada (a double World Championship medallist) and Christian Vennemann from Germany, teamed up with rowers from University of Limerick, Athlone and Neptune to win the Bulls and Bears event at the Castleconnell Head of the River today at O'Brien's Bridge.

The men’s senior pair was won by the Garda/University of Limerick crew of Niall Kenny and James Brynn and UL/Garda also won the senior fours.

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.
