Roscrea Session Information

As per the email sent by Don to all members availing of the bus, it is clear from responses received that we no longer have enough passengers to justify the continuance of the bus service to Roscrea. 

So to confirm that no bus will run on Monday 28th April or thereafter. The sessions in the Roscrea pool will continue until the end of May but swimmers will now have to arrange their own transport for these sessions.

Thanks to all those who supervised bus journeys and helped in any way. Also to Collison Bus Co. who were extremely professional and helpful. But especially to our swimmers who behaved impeccably and were a credit to themselves, their parents and their club.

The committee would also like to thank Don and Lian for their untiring efforts in arranging the service initially and their time in keeping it running efficiently.

Updated Training Session Information

Due to the continued unavailability of our own pool, please take note of the new training arrangements for the Apr – May sessions and other associated information under the headings Training Schedule Apr-May 2014 and Roscrea Transport Information on the top menu.

Easter Outing – April 12th 2014


VENUE:        UL Activity Centre, Two Mile Gate, Killaloe, Co. Clare

 DATE:           April the 12th 2014

TIME:            10am to 4pm

It has been a difficult season for everyone in the Club. The Committee appreciate the effort that everyone (Swimmers, Coaches and Parents) have put in, in ensuring that our swimmers have had pool time. The swimmers however, especially newer members, have missed out on the club experience enjoyed at our base in Nenagh. Therefore it is proposed to have a Club outing at the UL Activity Centre at Two Mile Gate, Killaloe, on Saturday the 12th of April 2014 (see below for further information on activities).  This outing is open to all Swimmers in the club and will run from 10a.m. to 4p.m.  The activities will be supervised by experienced instructors from the centre.

The activity camp will be followed (weather permitting) by a Club Picnic at 2 Mile Gate  – a barbeque will be on the go at this point with sausages and the like available. Please feel free to bring along a bit of salad or whatever tickles your taste buds if you wish!!!. This will be open to everyone incl. parents etc. so that everyone will get a chance to meet up.

The cost of the activity will be at the subsidised rate of €25.00 per participant, which represents tremendous value for the activities that will be offered on the day. We hope that as many Swimmers as possible will take the opportunity to partake in the activities. Anybody interested should register with their Coach on or before Sunday the 6th of April 2014. This will allow us to confirm numbers with the centre.

Please note that each Participant must pay the fee in full before April the 12th as otherwise they will not be able to take part on the day. The payment should be put in an envelope with the swimmers name. Cheques should be payable to Nenagh Neptune swimming club.

We look forward to meeting all of you on the day and sharing a soggy sandwich or two by the shores of Lough Derg!!!
