Ireland claimed another two medals at the World Cup Regatta in Rotterdam on Sunday morning, with new lightweight double sculls pairing Fintan McCarthy and Paul O'Donovan scooping silver.

Olympic silver medallist O'Donovan has been competing with 22-year-old McCarthy for the first time this weekend after their boat performed best at Ireland trials last month and they've justified the pairing with a strong showing.

Yesterday, Paul's brother Gary won bronze after a stirring performance in the the men's lightweight single sculls A final.

Earlier this morning Philip Doyle and Ronan Byrne also claimed silver in the A final of the men's double. They finished second in their A/B semi-final yesterday and followed it up with another excellent showing on the water.

Meanwhile double scull pair Monika Dukarska and Aileen Crowley finished sixth in their A final.

And lightweight women's double sculls crew of Denise Walsh and Lydia Walsh came home sixth in their B final.

"It was a promising end to the World Cup season by the whole team," said Rowing Ireland's high performance director Antonio Maurogiovanni.

"We will review the results over the coming days to see how we can take the team to the next important step towards the world championships and Olympic qualification."

Ireland’s Olympic qualification will start at the World Rowing Championships in Linz, from 25 August to 1 September.
