O'Donovan And McCarthy Win Gold For Ireland At Euro Rowing Champs
By PJ Browne Updated

Paul O'Donovan and Fintan McCarthy won gold for Ireland at the European Rowing Championships in Italy on Sunday afternoon.

The pair claimed victory in the lightweight men's double, finishing ahead of Germany in second and Italy in third.

"It was a decent race, it’s good to be back," said 2016 Olympic silver medallist O'Donovan.

"I was off last season so Fintan raced in the single last year. Fintan is just dragging me along in the double. We need bigger biceps. We’re gonna work on some curls which will see us through to the end of the summer."


It was Ireland's second medal of the championships. Earlier in the day, the Irish women's four of Emily Hegarty, Eimear Lambe, Aifric Keogh and Fiona Murtagh won silver, as they finished just behind the Netherlands, and ahead of Great Britain.
