Lightweight Four and Women's Double Miss Out at European Championships

29th May 2015
Lightweight Four and Women's Double Miss Out at European Championships

#ROWING: Ireland’s Lisa Dilleen and Helen Hannigan missed out on a place in the semi-finals of the European Rowing Championships when they finished fourth in their repechage of the women’s double sculls. The Ireland crew looked well-placed behind winners Denmark at 1500 metres, but were ousted from the crucial top three by Sweden and France. The men’s lightweight four performed competitively in the early stages of their repechage and showed some form late on, but they finished outside the qualifying spots, in fourth.

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.
