UL Rowing Club enjoys its most successful University Championships in its history

UL Enjoyed Great Success at the University Championships, pictured is the victorious Women's novice four, Michelle Lonergan, Nicola Griffin, Kate O'Sullivan, Stephanie Kearney and Lee Kilbridge.

The University of Limerick Rowing Club (ULRC) enjoyed huge success at the University Rowing Championships held last week in Cork. The event attracted teams from all the major rowing universities and colleges in the country including UL, UCD, TCD, Queens University and NUI Galway and was the first Regatta of the year.

The first university champions for ULRC this year came in the form of women’s novice double scull of Kate O’Sullivan and Nicola Griffin. Both women rowed to make amends for last year’s defeat in this event to Trinity and were deserving winners dominating the 2000 meter race event.

The men’s double scull of Stephen Penny and Mark O’Brien showed their vast experience in their event. The duo paddled well to finish third in the first heat behind Trinity and UCC. The double scull of Conor Doorley and Dave Meehan also qualified for the final in second place behind Queens. The Penny/ O’Brien combination then showed their true potential by completely destroying the field of six boats and becoming the university champions in this event.

The momentum of the ULRC wins gathered pace and it looked like Ger Sheehan would complete the hat trick, but Sheehan was denied victory by a very small margin, eventually claiming second. The junior (U-18) competitor of Dylan Ahern raced well to overcome third in this very competitive overage event.

The women’s novice four claimed ULRC’s final victory, where the double scull champions of Griffin/ O’Sullivan were joined by Stephanie Kearney and Michelle Lonergan. They defeated a Queens University quartet to claim ULRC’s third victory of the day. The Munster crew was steered to the win by Lee Kilbridge , ending a great day for UL rowing.

The hat trick of wins was a great boost to the rowers to kick start a hopefully successful season.

The University Championships were held at the National Rowing Centre in Farran Wood, outside of Cork city.
