Kenny and Jacques Fast in the Rain at Newry Rowing Trial

Kenny and Jacques Fast in the Rain at Newry Rowing Trial

# ROWING: Niall Kenny was the fastest man on the water at the Rowing Ireland National Assessments in Newry today. The 23 year old lightweight clocked 19 minutes 15 seconds for the five kilometres in the incessant rain. It was a good day for Galway competitors as the fastest crew was the heavyweight men’s pair of Fionnan McQuillan-Tolan and Sean O’Connor. Kenny was ranked as having hit 86.6 per cent of the projected world best time for his grade, but junior single sculler Bridget Jacques performed best of all on this rating, with a mark of 87.8 per cent. She was the third fastest woman after senior heavyweights Sanita Puspure and Monika Dukarska.

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.
