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
