Congratulations to Ireland’s double of Margaret Cremen (Lee Rowing Club) and Aoife Casey (Skibbereen Rowing Club) who won their B Final this morning to finish 7th in the World at the World Rowing Junior Championships in Trakai, Lithuania. Leading from the start, there was less than a boat length between them and the French throughout the race. In a thrilling finish, the Lee/Skibbereen pair held off the French crew to win the race in the final sprint, with the Dutch crew coming third

Finishing seventh overall of the 28 crews who took part in the Championships is a marvellous result for the lightweight athletes. Congratulations also to Lee’s Dan Buckley who coached the girls. We look forward to welcoming them all home in the next couple of days.
