U23 World Rowing Championships

Congratulations to DIT Sports Scholar Niall Beggan who was part of the Irish U23 Quadruple Sculls team that took 3rd place in the recent U23 World Rowing Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria!

The team finished in a time of 5:52.370, less than two seconds behind the winning Swiss team and only 2/100ths of a second behind 2nd placed Austria.

At only 19 years of age this is a marvellous achievement by Niall and the future certainly looks bright for him and Irish rowing.

Elsewhere, in the Home International Regatta in Scotland, DITs Sophie Eustace and Scott Addison, along with their respective crews, were unlucky not to come away with anything but put in performances that they can be proud of.
