North Munster championships March 2nd&3rd


Last weekend the club travelled to the North Munster Championships which took place in Askeaton Swimming Pool. This was a two day event starting Saturday evening and running all day Sunday. Thirty nine participants from the club made the trip with 126 entries over the two days.

The Saturday evening program consisted of the 200m Individual Medley and 400m Freestyle where nine members competed. Huge credit is due to this group and their parents for the dedication shown by attending on both days.

The majority of the participants competed on Sunday with  115 entries for the club The medal count was 9 gold, 9 silver, and  10 bronze with 68 personal bests swam and considering the recent busy run of swim meets in close succession this is a commendable achievement.

Phoebe Cooney and Dermot Kinane had great success during the day and earned themselves female and male swimmer of the Gala. Other highlights included Isabelle Dunne’s 50m FC time of 29.83 seconds in the Cannon and Lilly O’ Brien’s PB of 3.11.40 in the 200m fc (14 second PB).

This proved to be a very successful outing for the club with all swimmers doing themselves and the club proud.
