Harvard, with Irish rower Jack Dorney on board, took fourth place in the the Championship Eight at the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston. Washington won, with Dartmouth and Yale filling the next two spots.
The Shandon man (pictured) has relocated to Boston to study and row with Harvard after a very good year with Ireland. He took a silver medal in the Ireland four at the World Under-23 Championships.
Eoin Gaffney, also of Shandon, was part of the Princeton crew which took third in the lightweight eight behind Yale and Cornell. Gaffney also made an A Final at the World Under-23 Championships, partnering Rory O’Neill in the lightweight double sculls.
James Quinlan of Castleconnell stroked the Princeton Championship Four which finished fifth. The US team raced two crews, which finished first and second.
Commercial’s Aoife Moloney, in her first year at Princeton, rowed in the Championship coxed four which finished eighth.
Dorney has an excellent record at the huge Head of the Charles. He won the Youth Singles in 2018 and took third in 2019.
