Trinity Regatta Hit Hard by NUIG and UCD Withdrawals

#ROWING: The absence of the senior eights of UCD/Old Collegians and Gráinne Mhaol/NUIG – both entered, both did not compete – robbed Trinity Regatta of the anticipated top-level racing in this category today. Conditions were superb, with bright sunshine and calm water, and there were good wins for the Old Collegians senior pair of Peter Grogan and Gearóid Duane and Seán Jacob in the senior single sculls.
