#Rowing: The Afloat Rowers of the Month for May are the Ireland men’s junior coxed four which took silver at the European Junior Regatta in Essen, Germany. The crew of Matthew Gallagher (St Joseph’s), James O’Donovan (Castleconnell), Jack Dorney (Shandon), John Kearney (Cork) and cox Leah O’Regan (Shandon) gave gold medallists Germany a real battle, and were just three tenths of a second behind at the finish.
It was a good month for Irish crews in overseas regattas. Molly Curry of Coleraine GS – who won the Afloat Rower of the Month for February – had a remarkable win in the Championships Single Sculls at the National Schools Regatta on Dorney Lake. St Michael’s and Enniskillen also shone in a strong Irish contingent.
At home Commercial and UCD engaged in two fierce contests in the men’s eight at both Skibbereen and Metro Grand League Regatta. Commercial came out on top by small margins in both races.

#Rowing: Ireland just missed out on a place in the A/B semi-finals of the junior men’s quadruple at the World Junior Championships in Racice, Czech Republic. The crew of Luke Hayes Nally, Alex Byrne, Jack Dorney and Jack Keating finished third to Denmark and Chile, with just two boats going on; the race was fast, setting a new record for this event at a World Junior Championships.
Chile had led through most of the race, with Denmark never far away. Ireland moved into a clear third place. In the final 300 metres Denmark charged into the lead and flew away from Chile. Ireland did their best to catch Chile, but the South Americans kept their nerve well and held on to the crucial second spot by a length.
Ireland go to the C/D Semi-Finals. Earlier the women's junior pair of Eliza O'Reilly and Gill McGirr had qualified for the A/B Semi-Finals.

#Rowing: The under-23 lightweight pair of David O’Malley and Shane Mulvaney were the most emphatic of winners on the first day of the Ireland trial at the National Rowing Centre in Cork, while Philip Doyle won the men’s single sculls – in the absence of Queen’s University clubmate Sam McKeown, who has gone to the British system.
Emily Hegarty and Aifric Keogh teamed up well in a women’s pair and Monika Dukarska was untroubled in a fine win in the women’s single sculls. Sanita Puspure is overcoming a back injury and Aileen Crowley, who has partnered Keogh in a pair, has tendonitis. Denise Walsh has tonsilitis.
Andrew Goff was the best of a talented, ambitious, group of lightweight single single scullers.
The junior ranks were vibrant and drew praise from Ireland high performance director Antonio Maurogiovanni. Fermoy’s Eliza O’Reilly and Gill McGirr confirmed their preeminence in the women’s pair, while Enniskillen’s Odhran Donaghy and Nathan Timoney were the best junior men’s pair. Aoibhinn Keating of Skibbereen was the top junior women’s sculler and Jack Dorney looked strong as he raced away to win the junior men’s single.
