Molloy Replaces Giblin in NUIG/Grainne Mhaol Championship Eight

NUIG/Grainne Mhaol will have just one change of personnel to the crew which won the men’s senior eights as NUIG last year at this year's National Rowing Championships. Liam Molloy comes in for Paul Giblin, who is work-tied. UCD have a strong crew, which will be stroked by Tom Doyle, while Queen’s University have just three members of last year’s crew. Trinity will be represented by their intermediate eight. The Championships start on Thursday at the National Rowing Centre in Farran Wood, Cork. The first big final is the women’s senior four, which is scheduled for 12 o’clock.
