#Rowing: The Ireland junior men’s quadruple finished just outside the medals at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Corgeno, Italy, today. The crew of Rory O’Neill, Thomas Kelly, Fionn O’Reilly and Andrew Sheehan were just .87 off a medal. Italy won from Spain, with Britain just ahead of Ireland in bronze medal spot.
Ireland had two other A Finalists: the junior double of Chris Kirwan and Holly Davis finished fifth. The new unit had finished a good second in their heat, and were in the leading three in their race until the final quarter. The junior women’s pair of Claragh O’Sullivan and Jane Duggan also took fifth.
The junior women’s quad and four took second in their B Finals.
Sunday gives all the crews another chance to compete in heats and finals.
