Additional two wins for Killorglin Rowing Club at Skibbereen HOR!

Sean Houlihan and Shane O’Connor won the Men’s Junior 15 Double Scull, 7 seconds clear of Skibbereen RC with another 11 seconds back to Workmans RC. The Women’s Junior 14 Quad of Anna Tyther, Molly O’Grady, Rhiannon O’Donoghue and Mara Treacy coxed by Stephen O’Sullivan won their race by a second over Lee Rowing Club and opened up a 2 minutes gap over Shandon BC crew which finished third overall.

Skibbereen HOR Update

Well done to Marie O’Connor, the overall winner in the Women’s Club 2 Single Sculls. Cathal O’Donovan finished strong 4th in the Men’s Junior 18 Single Sculls. The Women’s Club Pair of O’Connor sisters clocked 16minutes for 3,000meters and were the only entrants, hence the winners in this event. Caragh Edwards finished 4th in the Women’s Club 1 Single Sculls.

Head of the Rivers are often difficult as rower’s race against the clock while the course is wide and requires rowers to navigate. It is important to select the shortest route possible. These races are a great learning experience for seniors as well as novice rowers.

More results to follow.
