UCD won the Gannon Cup for senior men at Colours 2014 after a terrific struggle. Trinity’s crew led the race from just after the start, but could not gain a clearwater lead. UCD’s pushes were relentless, and though they were still behind coming through the final bridge, Watling Street, they then powered through and had command of the race when a member of Trinity’s crew collapsed. The race was not rowed out. He was being treated in St James’s Hospital after the race – we wish him well and a speedy recovery.
In the novice race UCD were in control coming into the Four Courts but a crab brought the boat to a halt and UCD were playing catch up after that. These two crews are bound to have some tight races over the remainder of the season.
