Hello All,
We hope you are all keeping well – here’s some club news and information on a great Swim Ireland raffle that we are asking for you to support.      
  • Irish U17 Cup – Our Boys & Girls team competed in the U17 Cup in Belfast in January. Both teams played very well and made it out of their respective groups to Semi-Final stage.  Well done to our Girls team, who were runners-up in the final, taking home the silver medal, and to our Boys team, who finished in bronze medal position. Great experience & fun was had by both teams.  Thank you to our coaches, assistant coaches, and Team Managers and to all the parents who supported the teams over the weekend.    
  • Irish U13 Cup – Best of luck to our junior boys who will play in the U13 Cup on the weekend of 12th February in Galway. This will be the first tournament for many of the team, we hope you all enjoy it and have great fun together! Thanks to Mick Kelly, Coach and Siobhan Egan, Team Manager.
