Episode 123: Gold for Paul O'Donovan & Fintan McCarthy, silver for Emily Hegarty as Skibbereen rowers dominate European Championships


It’s a rowing special on this week’s show as we reflect on yet more remarkable performances from Skibbereen rowers on the international stage.



On Sunday afternoon in Varese Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy added the 2021 European title to their 2019 World crown.



The Skibbereen duo raced to gold in the A final of the lightweight men’s double at the European Championships and on today’s podcast we chat to 2016 Rio Olympian Clare Lambe about their performances.



Fellow Skibbereen rower Emily Hegarty won a silver medal.



The Aughadown woman is part of the Irish women’s four that finished second to The Netherlands and we’ll speak to Emily a little later on today’s show.
