Irish Indoor Rowing Championships Nov 2013

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.
