Askeaton Invitation Gala 18th November

We had 71 swimmers attending this event which turned out to be a much longer day than anticipated. Many were competing in their first gala and were well taken care of under the mindful eyes of Coachs Eoin (who was head coach for the day) and Uta.

Despite the stroke judges being very strict on the day which lead to the many disqualifications our swimmers brought home a cache of 11 Gold, 13 Silver and 19 Bronze medals. However it is not all about medals and there were 74 personal best times achieved too.

 Many congratulations to all who swam on what was a very hard long  day especially to our younger swimmers for whom it was all so new and daunting, also to some of our older swimmers  namely Sinead Kinane,Isabelle Dunne, Sarah McCutcheon, Lianne O Kelly and Jessie Langdridge who turned in great performances on the day.

We had nine enthuastic swimmers for this two day event. The gala commenced at lunch time on Sat with a daunting 1500m frontcrawl event and concluded on Sunday pm. Well done to all swimmers who represented our club and brought home some medals too. The swimmers were supported by their parents, Head coach Mark Depmsey and  Shay O Dwyer coach.
