There has been nothing but pride in the Kerry this week given the sporting successes achieved by the Kingdom's very own, and not least of these are the performances of our rowers, who have already taken to the Olympic Stage.

By the time The Kerryman hits the shelves, the two Killorglin rowers, Monika Dukarska and Aileen Crowley, will have competed in the semi-finals of the W2 event at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo having finished third in the repêchage in the early hours of Sunday morning (Irish time). Having failed to place in the top three positions in their first race, they were given a second chance in the repêchage and duly snatched the opportunity.
