One-Design Coastal Rowing boat

Today our coaches Mick and Mike Fleming went to CustomWorks in Ringaskiddy to collect our new One-Design Coastal Rowing boat. Right in time for the All Ireland’s!! 👌🏼

Mr Roddy O’Connor construed this beauty in no time! It has been a good few years since we ordered our last coastal boat and we are very impressed with it.

Now just to stick no. 34 on it, name it and we are ready for Donegal!! 💪🏼

Big thanks to Mr Rod O’Connor for providing such an excellent service and delivering a top quality boat. We are delighted with it.

Now we have to christen it and put it on the Laune! 🚣🏼

Irish National Rowing Championships 2016

National Rowing Championships 2016

What an amazing championship for the Club!Killorglin athletes secured two championship wins and one senior championship title for the Club.

Friday’s Racing:

First victory went to our Men’s Junior 16 Quad of Michael O’Connor, Sean Houlihan, Conor Murphy and Shane O’Connor coxed by Mara Treacy. The boys won their heat comfortably and qualified for the final. In the final they displayed magnificent rowing, the rowing stroke was controlled, long and powerful. The boys won their race with 3 second lead over Shandon A crew of Cork with further 3 seconds to Commercial Rowing Club of Dublin.

Shortly after, the Women’s Junior 15 quad of Mara Treacy, Molly O’Grady, Rhiannon O’Donoghue and Anna Tyther coxed by Alanna Dolan followed the victorious track set by boys and won their final over Carlow, Muckross and Clonmel crews.

Saturday’s Racing:

Monika Dukarska won her 7th National Championship Title since taking up rowing in early 2007. Monika became the Senior Single Scull Champion of Ireland in a massive time of 7:35.06 over 2000m. Monika lead the race from start to finish executing her race perfectly and opening a lead of 16 seconds over McCrohan of Tribesmen, Galway, the reigning Champion 2015. Having moved back into the single in February this year, Monika worked very hard to get back into top form and she has proven once again that her talents lie in sculling and this rowing event suits her in particular. Monika will now return to training in preparations for the World University Championships in September in Poznan, Poland. She will race the single scull for Ireland & IT Tralee.

Other results (Saturday):

Michael O’Connor, James McCarthy and Shane O’Connor miss out on top 2 finish in the Men’s Club Single Sculls. It was a very competitive race with 42 entrants in this rowing event. 9 heats this morning with 18 rowers through.

Alanna Dolan finished 3rd in the Final 1 of the Women’s Junior 15 Single Sculls. Rhiannon O’Donoghue was 4th in the final 2 of the same event, while Anna Tyther finished 3rd in the Final 4 of the Women’s Junior 15 Single Sculls

Sunday’s Racing

Sean Houlihan continued his winning streak in the Men’s Junior 16 Single Sculls reaching final in a superb Semifinal performance of 7:42 over 2000m. Michael O’Connor went as far as the Semi Final, winning his heat over Clonmel, Blackrock, Castleconnel and Lee scullers. Sean contested the final in lane 3 and finished 5th overall out of 46 competitors entered. It was a superb performance by Sean. He has a huge potential going forward.

Other results (Sunday)

The quad of Mara Treacy, Molly O’Grady, Rhiannon O’Donoghue and Anna Tyther coxed by Alanna Dolan contested the Women’s Junior 16 event in the fastest heat, pulling the third fastest time of all 15 competitors but missed out on top 2 finish, finishing 3rd in the race. All the girls are under 16 again next year, it was a great learning experience for them all.

Well done to all our rowers, coaches, in particular Michael Fleming for all his hard work and dedication over the years, friends and supporters of the Club!

Mighty Championship!!
