Dilleen and Kennedy Grab Place in European Final with Good Win

#ROWING: Ireland’s Lisa Dilleen and Leonora Kennedy qualified for the A Final of the women’s pair at the European Rowing Championships in Belgrade in Serbia today. The first two boats in this repechage qualified directly and Ireland had taken a clear lead by halfway. Germany, in their own battle for second with the Czech Republic, pushed the Irish in the second half, but Dilleen and Kennedy held on to win by just over a length.
