Sligo’s Brian Colsh selected for European Rowing Championships

Sligo’s Brian Colsh will row for Ireland this week at the European Senior Rowing Championships in Slovenia.

The Ballymote man has been selected for the men’s heavyweight single sculls – which is the event with the largest number of entries (23).

The championships run in Slovenia from Thursday to Sunday, May 25th-28th.

Colsh reached the quarter-finals of the senior World Rowing Championships in the Czech Republic last September – and enjoyed a top 15 finish overall by reaching the ‘B’ final.

He has already won medals for Ireland and junior and U23 level with various crews at previous European and World Championships.
