#Rowing: Eliza O’Reilly and Gill McGirr took third in their repechage and qualified for the A/B semi-finals of the World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic this morning. In quite rough conditions, the Fermoy girls thought their way through the race well. Slovenia and France went off fast, but the Slovenians faltered and France took over the lead, with Hungary tracking them. Ireland pushed into third. These three boats fashioned a clearwater lead and never gave it up.
