Irish Indoor Rowing Championships- 23rd January
The end of January saw Jordan Wilson, Tiernan Oliver and Philip Doyle travel to the Irish Indoor Rowing Championships in the University of Limerick’s Sport Arena to test their mettle against the best the country had to offer. This is a prime opportunity for not only the clubs elite athletes to contest for National Trials but also the Academy Members to increase their experience at larger competitions to help progress to larger feats within the sport.
Tiernan Oliver pictured above with Sam McKeown from Portadown BC came 2nd in the Open 2000m missing the Gold medal by only 0.3 seconds.
