By Colman Stanley Updated

Ireland have brought home a silver medal at the European Rowing Championships. The women's four boat of Natalie Long, Aifric Keogh, Tara Hanlon, and Eimear Lambe, finished second in their 'A', just 2.07 behind Great Britain.

The team finished a second ahead of Romania in third, while Denmark just missed out on a medal by half a second.

Keogh and Lambe were part of the women's four who took home bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics, where they had pipped Great Britain to a podium spot.
