Killorglin boys dominate the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships!
Big well done to Kieran O’Sullivan and Sean Houlihan on their magnificent performances on Saturday, the 23rd of November. Boys raced the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships at the UL Arena in Limerick. Boys participated in the Men’s Junior 15 and Men’s Junior 13 events. Kieran was racing the 5min race while Sean did the 3min piece. Monika Dukarska raced the Women’s Open category finishing 1 second behind the 3rd. Kieran finished 3rd overall in a very tough race. The winner of the race has challenged the Irish MJ15 record but unfortunately did not break it. Sean Houlihan on the other hand finished strong 2nd behind Carlow Rowing Club athlete.
The national indoor rowing championships also comprised the second part of the National Trials to the Irish Team. The next trial will be held in Newry in February.
The group of athletes and coaches travelling to UL had a very enjoyable, chilly but dry and sunny day.
Another good day for our athletes at the Castleconnell Head of the River!
Despite the bad weather conditions with wind and rain keeping us company throughout the day; our rowers took to the water in the early hours of this morning. Killorglin RC athletes entered races ranging from Women’s Novice single scull to the Men’s Junior 15 quadruple events. Our Men’s Junior 15 double scull of Kieran O’Sullivan and John F O’Grady raced impressively finishing first, 27seconds ahead of the St. Michaels RC of Limerick and Colaiste Iognaid RC of Galway crews. Boys were also the fastest double in both junior15 and junior 16 categories. They are under16 again next year. Looking good boys!!
Sean Houlihan and Conor Murphy raced the Men’s Junior 14 Single scull event finishing second and third respectively followed by three Clonmel scullers finishing over a minute after our rowers. It is great to see young talent coming through. Shane O’Connor joined Conor Muphy in the Men’s Junior 14 double scull event. Boys performed well finishing third overall. It is a newly formed crew and their first race together at the Head of the River. Well done boys!
Emma Murphy represented the Club in the Women’s Novice Scull event, finishing well in the pack. It is Emma’s first exposure to single sculling at the Heads hence it was a good experience. Boys also raced the Men’s Junior 15 quad, the crew of Kieran O’Sullivan, John F O’Grady, Jack Cox and Kieran Morris coxed by Kerri Fay finished fifth overall giving their all to the line.
Well done to all athletes racing today and thanks to Maeve McGillycuddy and Mike Fleming for getting crews organised and ready, as weather was proving to be harsh on all. Meanwhile our international athlete Monika Dukarska is training hard at the National Rowing Centre in Inniscarra Co. Cork preparing for international duties for 2014.
