Royal St George YC Sets The Pace In Junior All-Ireland Title

Royal St George YC in Dun Laoghaire - founded in 1838, but right up to the minute in modern Ireland and junior sailing

The Royal St George YC in Dun Laoghaire may have been founded way back in 1838, and it makes its headquarters in one of the stately classic buildings which set the traditional style on the harbour waterfront.

But 184 years after its founding to serve the needs of a special very established niche in Irish society where young sailors were seldom seen, let alone heard, it's now in some ways a different place altogether.

This evening, RStGYC is right up to speed on national junior sailing with the win and a four-place dominance in the first six places at the conclusion today (Sunday) of the national All-Ireland Junior Championship in Schull, West Cork.

And it does it with a team list which reads more like the roll call at a Gaeltacht Summer School than resonating with the names of RStGYC sailors of yore.

The preliminary published results give RStGYC's Fiachra Geraghty-McDonnell the win, and though the second place was taken by Ben O'Shaughnessy of the Royal Cork, two more Royal St George junior sailors - Archie Daly and Trevor Bolger - come in at third and fourth with Howth then getting a two-place look-in, with rising Optimist star Harry Dunne placing fifth ahead of Youth Worlds Gold Medallist and defending champion Rocco Wright in sixth.
