Nenagh Neptune Invitational Gala




Nenagh Neptune Invitational Gala

Our club invitational gala was held on Saturday 10th November. There was a large attendance of swimmers from other clubs – Killarney, Kingfisher, Sundays Well, Carrick Dippers, Dunmanway, Tramore. Tralee, Ballybunnion, Dingle, West Cork. In total 260 swimmers took part whch made for a very busy but enjoyable day. Due to the excessive numbers entered meant we had to restrict this gala to ages 9 – 12yrs old. The day would not have been possible without the support from the parents, committee members, older swimmers, and the coaches. A big thank you to all who helped out at baking, sandwich making, shop selling, medal sorting, lane call ups, timekeepers, etc. The swimmers enjoyed the day, swam very well and behaved impeccably. The older teammates in the club who didn’t swim but helped out were also a great example to the youngers.

143 Personal Bests

14 Medals: Well done Anna Ryan, Rachel Quigley, Ania Dybikowska, Blake Byrne, Aiveen O Brien, Matthew Milaszewicz.

55 swims in the Top 10
