Detailed Bio


  • The 25-year-old from Cabra in Dublin, made history when she won a Bronze Medal in rowing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in the Women’s Four (W4) alongside Aifric Keogh, Fiona Murtagh and Emily Hegarty. They were the first Irish female rowers to secure Olympic medals and they were only the second ever Irish female crew to compete in an Olympic final.
  • Eimear started rowing in 2012 at Commercial Rowing Club in Dublin. She first competed internationally at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in 2013 and raced at the Youth Olympics in the same year.
  • Her older sister, Claire Lambe, competed for Ireland in rowing at international level, and finished sixth in lightweight double sculls final at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
  • Eimear studied International Commerce and German at UCD and is currently working in a graduate program in Business Consultancy with Ernst and Young.
  • She likes to keep up to speed with current affairs, enjoys hiking and is a supporter of Sanctuary runners (enables Irish residents to run alongside, and in solidarity with, asylum seekers and refugees in Direct Provision). This aligns with her view on the power of sport, to bring people together as well as build character and support positive mental wellness.
