National Rowing Championships 11th, 12th and 13th of July 2014
One rowing season ends and another rowing season begins. The National Rowing Championships on the 11th, 12th and 13th of July mark the end of the slider rowing season for Killorglin Rowing Club each year. This date also marks an official beginning of the Coastal rowing season and preparation towards the All Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships. Killorglin RC took the National Rowing Centre in Inniscarra Co. Cork by storm competing in 9 events over the three days of the championships. First off was the Men’s Junior 16 Quad of Kieran O’Sullivan, John F O’Grady, Cathal O’Donovan and Sean Houlihan coxed by Tara O’Connor who won their heat comfortably. The boys however knew that the final wouldn’t be as easy and even though the boys got a personal best over the 2,000m stretch of water it was not enough to catch the Commercial crew. They missed out by a boat length to Commercial but were clear water ahead over other competitors. Great performance by the boys!
Cathal O’Donovan raced the Men’s Club Single Scull on Saturday morning finishing first in his heat and progressing into the Semi-Final in the afternoon. In the next race he had to finish in top three positions to progress into the final in the evening. Cathal raced an outstanding race finishing third to Lee Rowing Club and Belfast Boat Club scullers. Having achieved that Cathal raced his final finishing 4th overall, out of the 28 competitors who entered in this event. It was a first championship race for Cathal having started rowing with Killorglin last winter. Well done Cathal, great start to a great career. Conor Murphy and Sean Houlihan also raced the single scull events but in an under14 age category. Both boys finished 3rd in their respective finals. Well done Conor and Sean.
The big race of the day however was the Women’s Double Scull event, where Monika Dukarska teamed up with our ex-international Irish lightweight rower - Fiola Foley - who returned home to Killorglin from Switzerland to represent the Club at the National Championships. The girls dominated the field from the start, opening the gap after 1000m mark and finishing three boat lengths of clear water ahead of the Commercial crew in an impressive time of 7:17sec. The girls were ahead by 1 minute and 44 second of the last crew that crossed the line! Impressive!
Fiola having raced for Ireland at several World Cup regattas and World Championships returned to the boat after 10 year break. She also competed in the Women’s Lightweight Single Scull on Saturday, finishing 5th overall and the Women’s Intermediate Single Scull on Sunday, finishing in a 3rd place. It was a big come back for Fiola and who knows, we might see her rowing in green colours again!
It is the second time that Killorglin wins the Women’s Double Scull Championship of Ireland and this brings our total championship wins to 13! It is a great achievement for such a small town and Club like Killorglin.
Our Men’s Junior 15 quad of Conor Murphy, Sean Houlihan, Michael O’Connor and Shane O’Connor coxed by Tara O’Connor raced very well but ended up in a tough Final finishing 4th overall. Well done boys, we will win this race next year!
Killorglin RC was also involved in the Men’s Double Scull event, where Kieran O’Sullivan and John F O’Grady raced against much older competitors finishing strong 4th in the heat but missing out on the qualifying place for the Semi-Final. Similarly, Cathal O’Donovan progressed into the Semi-Final stage of the Men’s Junior 16 Single Scull event finishing one second behind the qualifying place. It has been an enjoyable weekend for all and we raced some great races, getting personal bests and these hard to get medals. Also big thanks to all parents who supported the Club during the year and helped out at the championships. Congratulations to Mike Fleming for preparing the crews so well and congratulations on the championship wins. Well done Killorglin Rowing Club. However, that’s not the end of racing for some. Monika Dukarska will race this Wednesday, the 16th of July to trial for the World Championships place. The World Championships are in Amsterdam at the end of August. Best of luck Monika we hope to see you there!

Sunday last, the 13th July, saw the annual arrival of members of Caragh Bridge Angling Club to Killarney - While the fishing might not have been ideal, a good feast was had on the historic shore of Glena and as it would happen on the day, in the midst of the troop of the Meitheal as they had a well earned lunch break from their sterling efforts on the mountain pathway clearing. We look forward to our return visit to Caragh River on the 01st September and the hopes of better angling!
