Ireland Double Find Going Tough at European Rowing

#ROWING: Monika Dukarska and Eimear Moran finished fourth in their B Final at the European Rowing Championships in Belgrade in Serbia this morning. The Ireland crew started well and disputed the lead with the young Czech Repbulic crew until about 750 metres. But then Italy passed the Irish and Austria did the same after halfway. The Ireland double placed 10th overall.
