Casey and Dukarska Excel at Irish Offshore Championships

9th September 2017
Casey and Dukarska Excel at Irish Offshore Championships

#Rowing: The titles at the Irish Offshore Championships were widely spread. Only the host club, Arklow, won twice, through their women’s double and John Casey in the offshore single. Casey, though he rows for Arklow and now lives nearby, is from Sneem. The quadruples went to Courtmacsherry (men) and Castletownbere (women), while New Ross won the men’s double. Killorglin woman Monika Dukarska, who will defend her world title in the offshore single next month in France, was dominant in the boat at Arklow. Conditions were testing, with a strong wind and rain squalls.
