Win Two Tickets to Premier League Game

All clubs need regular fundraising to help keep swim teams accessible to all families in our communities.

Competitive swimming is a notoriously expensive sport – having costly equipment and huge overheads that come with the many training hours required to grow successful aquatic athletes.

Bluefin is particularly lucky and extremely grateful that we are hugely supported by The Brothers of Charity and the management at Kilcornan Pool, which has helped Bluefin SC evolve into a strong and vibrant team.

A percentage of all our fundraising will help promote the pool and the charities supported by The Brothers of Charity.

Your help to raise much-needed funds is vital
in keeping our busy club going strong.

We have two fantastic tickets to see Manchester United vs West Ham in the Salford Suite on Saturday 9th May – along with a voucher for flights and accommodation – all valued at over €700.

Get your tickets from any of our fantastic Bluefin parents; or they will be available in Eurospar, Kinvara at 10am on Saturday 1st February!

Tickets cost just €10 and will be drawn on Saturday 15th February 2020 at Kilcornan Pool, Clarenbridge.

Please support!
