Under 11 Girls – Ava O’Malley had a fantastic day out taking a beautiful gold in the 100 metres Individual Medley and following that up with a bronze in the 100 metres backstroke.

Under 11 Boys – Ian Coffey was in flying form winning silver in the 100 metres breaststroke and bronze in the 100 metres freestyle. Certainly a swimmer to watch for the future.

Over 14 Girls – Ellen Farndon won a lovely gold in the 100 metres backstroke while Saibh O’Brien also took the gold for Killarney in the 100 metres breaststroke. Elizabeth McGuire gave it welly to win bronze in the 100 metres breaststroke and Ellen O’Connor decided to go for quantity winning silver in the 200 metres Individual Medley, silver in the 100 metres backstroke and bronze in the 100 metres Individual Medley. Orlaith O’Sullivan had a great day out seizing silver in the 100 metres breaststroke and bronze in the 100 metres freestyle.

Over 14 Boys – Sean Farndon continued his winning ways from last year to take a gold medal in the 200 metres Individual Medley, another gold in the 100 metres backstroke and a bronze medal in the 100 metres breaststroke.

Michael Sweeney finished off a very satisfactory day for Killarney by taking a technically perfect bronze in the 100 metres butterfly.
