Very well done to Elena Byrne-Garcia, Form 2 who competed recently in the Rowing Ireland, National Rowing Championships at the National Rowing centre in Cork. She, along with her Crewmates from Whitegate Rowing Club won the U14 ladies national title last week.

The U14 Girls were in one of the most competitive categories in the entire championships, with 27 crews (well over 100 rowers) entered from across the four provinces of Ireland. Whitegate progressed from one of three heats on the Saturday qualifying in second place, then shocked the gallery on Sunday by powering home to win this national title with a boat length to spare. A fabulous achievement!
