Congratulations to our swimmers who took part in the Invitational Gala in Tralee last Saturday. The event was an opportunity for the best junior talent in the Munster region to compete against their peers. There were some substantial improvements by our swimmers on their own “personal best” times for events and a very satisfactory collection of medals given the stiff competition. Particular congratulations to the O’Leary brothers, Paudie and Ross, who were absolutely on fire on the day.
Under 11 Boys – Paudie O’Leary took gold in the 100 metres backstroke and silver medals in the 200 metres freestyle and 100 metres butterfly while Ross O’Leary won silver medals in the 100 metres backstroke and 50 metres freestyle. Well done, lads.
Under 16 boys – Robert O’Brien won a hard-fought gold medal in the 100 metres breaststroke with Shane Kerins taking the silver in the 100 metres butterfly.
Thanks to our lead-coach, Kristian O’Donovan, who gave huge support and encouragement to all our swimmers. Thanks also to all parents for travelling.
