Swimming Club Members Shine
There were 14 swimmers represented Galway County Community Games finals in Tuam and all put in great performances. For many, this was their first taste of competition, and they won six gold medal winners, four silver and three bronze.
Head Coach Fiona Monaghan was delighted with the performances of everyone who took part. All those who won gold will be entered into the National Finals at the University of Limerick later in the month - Jack Connaughton, Abigail Monaghan, Laura Costello, Philip Costello, Kayla Mc Keon, and Evan Mc Keon.
Members of the swimming club were treated to a great event earlier in the summer when Olympic Swimmer and National record holder Darragh Greene, attended Coral Leisure for a morning. He gave a gym and pool coaching session to over 40 members, young and old.
In July, Leon and Evan Mc Keon, represented the Club in the National Division Two Championships which were held in Limerick over five days. This was a great opportunity to race with top swimmers from all around the country and both put in great performances. Evan came away with a bronze medal in the 50m freestyle, a great achievement.
