24th February 2018
Andrew Goff Andrew Goff

#Rowing: Andrew Goff of UCD and Ronan Byrne of UCC impressed in the six kilometre time trial at the Ireland Assessment at the National Rowing Centre today. Goff, an under-23 lightweight, came out on top overall in the rankings when given weighting for his class, while Byrne was second, and was the best under-23 heavyweight.

 The UCC under-23 women’s pair of Emily Hegarty and Tara Hanlon made their mark, while Monika Dukarska impressed in the women’s single. Sanita Puspure missed the trial through injury.

 The trial was run in a strong – and rising – headwind and there is a very limited programme tomorrow, Sunday.

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.
