Best of luck to all Killorglin rowers racing at the National trials this weekend! Monika Dukarska will race the Women’s Double Scull event on Friday, with 1,500m time trial and 2,000m side by side racing planned for Sunday. This trial is the last selection event, with crews for international regattas being selected. Also, best of luck to Karen Joy, Maeve McGillycuddy, Kieran O’Sullivan, John Francis O’Grady, Paul Bradley and John Buckley on Saturday. Karen and Maeve will race the Women’s Senior Pair, aiming to qualify for the Homes International Regatta this summer. The men’s crews will also race the pair event with Kieran and John F participating in the under18 category, with John and Paul racing the Senior men’s event. Home International Regatta this season will be hosted by Ireland at the National rowing Centre in Inniscarra Co. Cork. It will be a great opportunity for the local Community to support our athletes racing for Ireland and putting on the green shirt.
Big thank you to everyone who supported our Church Gate collection on Saturday and Sunday last. It is great to see the support from the local Community. The Management and the members of Killorglin Rowing Club greatly appreciate it.
Monika was a sole representative of Killorglin Rowing Club at the third trials for the National Team in Newry. Monika had an outstanding performance, finishing second overall in the Women’s Heavyweights category. This puts Monika in a very strong position this season to represent Ireland at the International regattas. The conditions on both days were challenging with strong tail wind. The races were held over 5killometers on the Newry Canal.
Last assessment is being held on the 28-30th of March, where crews for Senior Worlds will be selected. Best of luck Monika!
Great night was had by the rowing supporters and the Management of Killorglin Club at the 2013 Sport Awards at Malton Hotel Killarney last Friday. Monika Dukarska was the winner of the Olympic style rowing category, with coastal rowing being also acknowledged, as a standalone category. Big congratulations to Monika for winning the award and her unquestionable dedication to rowing.
Also, big thanks to Mary B Teahan, the Irish Drains for sponsoring the award and Clodagh Irwin Owens (Irwin Owens Designs) for dressing Monika in Club colours ;)
