Bluefin SC at the top of the Castle in Castlebar!

Well done to all our athletes who took part in the Connacht Sprint Development Meet at the spectacular new pool in Castlebar. We look forward to taking part in events in this amazing facility in the future.

We had 17 swimmers competing in this event, the following Swimmers who represented our club with pride are Lauren, Isabelle, Miriam, Amy, Lillian, Emma, Billy, Harry, Diarmuid, Hugh, Daniel, Samuel, Mark, Finn, Isabelle, Lúc and Hannah

Across 29 events, the team achieved amazing PBs, A-times, B-times and C-times. We also took part in relays, which demonstrated great team work from all the athletes. The tally of medals was a fantastic 11, with Amy, Miriam, Diarmaid, Mark, Lúc, Finn and Samuel bringing home the silverwear. But, most importantly, they all had fun achieving their goals.

Thank you Coach Karen for your time and enthusiasm which help each of our athletes achieve their targets. Thank you also to our volunteer timekeeper on the day, Paul Darcy.

This gala marked the end of a successful season for some of our swimmers and we can look forward to another equally triumphant season next year.

Team Manager,
