The logo of the Killarney Swimming Club is of a White-tailed Eagle (Iolar Mhara or Haliaeetus albicilla) swooping down over water to catch a fish. The twin concepts behind the club’s logo were that (a) it should clearly represent where we are from and (b) as we are a swimming club, it should feature water.
It was felt that the White-tailed Eagle was the perfect choice given its recent re-introduction to Killarney National Park following an absence of 110 years. For more information on the White-tailed Eagle reintroduction programme, visit www.goldeneagle.ie.
Our swimming club’s colours are purple, blue and white which are taken from the Killarney Town crest. We went for a distinguishable purple cap so that our swimmers would be easily recognisable when competing in galas.
