 In the women’s single, Margaret Cremen was fastest, ahead of her Olympic crewmate in the lightweight double, Aoife Casey. Cremen had also been fastest in the heats.

 An experienced Commercial/Neptune men’s quadruple fell to a University of Limerick/Castleconnell composite crew and University of Limerick’s senior crew were also the fastest women’s quadruple.  Commercial won the men’s pair.
