#Rowing: Ireland finished second in the C Final of the junior men’s quadruple at the World Junior Rowing Championships in Racice in the Czech Republic. This placed the crew of Luke Hayes Nally, Alex Byrne, Jack Dorney and Jack Keating 14th overall. Italy led early, and Ireland were their only consistent challengers. By the 1500-metre mark Italy were one and a quarter lengths clear of the Irish. Ukraine tried hard to unseat the Ireland crew, but they held on, finishing just over a length down on winners Italy.

 The Ireland junior women’s double took fourth in their C Final, 16th overall. At the head of the race, Croatia produced an excellent finish in the final metres to overhaul long-term leaders Lithuania. Austria took the next spot, with Ireland’s Ciara Moynihan and Ciara Browne next through.

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.
