#ROWING – Ireland's Leonora Kennedy and Monika Dukarska won gold for the second day running at the Memorial Paolo d'Aloja regatta in Piediluco in Italy. The Enniskillen/Killorglin pair have only come together as a crew in recent weeks, but again proved faster than Spain and Italy crews.
The lightweight women's double of Claire Lambe and Denise Walsh competed with the heavyweight crews and finished fifth.
The Ireland men's lightweight double missed out on the final: they raced well on Saturday evening but finished third behind South Africa, the world champions, Greece.
