#Rowing: A good selection of Irish crews made it through the Qualifiers for Henley Royal Regatta on Friday – a number of them in the difficult ‘open’ events.

 In the Hambleden Pairs – an open event – Natalie Long of Skibbereen and Sadhbh O’Connor of NUIG came through, as did Orla Hayes in the Princess Royal Cup, the open category in women’s single sculls.

 Enniskillen’s boys’ quadruple made in through in the Fawley, and their girls’ quadruple matched them in the Diamond Jubillee.

 The UCD women’s eight did not make it through in the Remenham, an open event, but Nathan Hull of Queen’s and Ollie Dix of Leander qualified in the Double Sculls.
