Congratulations to all our swimmers who took part in the Regional Long-Course Qualifying Meet in Limerick at the weekend. Some great PB’s achieved against the finest swimmers from Munster and Connaught.
Well done to Niamh Coffey who, swimming in possibly her last gala for Killarney Swimming Club, won a fantastic bronze in the 100 butterfly.
Also swimming in what could be her last gala was Imogen O’Connor who decided to go out with a splash and knocked seconds off her PB’s in all events.
Paudie O’Leary was on absolute fire on Sunday and, on just his second time swimming long-course, broke the one-minute barrier in the 100 freestyle. This is a first for the club and a huge achievement from one of our talented, up-and-coming young swimmers.
Thanks to our coach for the weekend, Cathal O’Brien, whose guidance, as always, was invaluable. Thanks also to all parents for travelling but, in particular, those who took part in officials duties – Deirdre O’Connor, Samantha O’Connor, Anita O’Dowd, Deirdre O’Doherty and Mike Hickey.
