Ireland Women's Four and Lydia Heaphy Progress at World Rowing Championships

27th August 2019

#Rowing: Ireland brought its tally of boats qualified for the next round to eight this morning at the World Rowing Championships in Linz, Austria.

The women's four of Tara Hanlon, Eimear Lambe, Aifric Keogh and Emily Hegarty slotted into the semi-finals by taking second behind China in their repechage.

Lydia Heaphy qualified for the semi-final with a third placing the repechage of the lightweight single sculls.

The men's lightweight quadruple fell just short of qualifying for the A Final. The crew of Hugh Sutton, Miles Taylor, Ryan Ballantine and Jake McCarthy finished fifth, with four going through. The Netherlands won from Denmark, Austria and Ireland, with the United States sixth.

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.
