By PJ Browne

The Irish women's four claimed silver - Ireland's first medal - at this year's European Rowing Championships.

At the championships in Varese, Italy, the Irish boat of Emily Hegarty, Eimear Lambe, Aifric Keogh and Fiona Murtagh finished just behind gold medal winners Netherlands with Great Britain in third.

"The medal this year means a lot to us because we're so close to Olympic qualification," said Aifric Keogh.

"A lot of crews from Ireland are already qualified, and for us to be able to finish that close to the Dutch is a really huge confidence boost."
