Best of luck to our junior rower – Rhiannon O’Donoghue at the June national trials in Cork this weekend. Rhiannon is competing for the Women’s Junior pair event, aiming for the Coupe de la Jaunesse or Home Internationals selection for Ireland. The first day of the racing is now completed, several combinations were tested throughout the day with Rhiannon placing 2nd and 3rd respectively with Shannon and Cork Boat Club rowers. Tomorrow Rhiannon will have two more races, where other combinations will be tested before final selection at Cork Regatta at the end of June. Best of luck to Rhiannon in her quest for green jersey and the Leaving Certificate examination – fierce dedication.
