Big cheer to the athletes and parents from Bluefin Swim Team and Predator Triathlon Club who bravely attempted to swim 100x100m (and 50x100m) in Kilcornan this St Patrick’s Day.
This was a youth-led fundraiser, and 100% of the monies raised going towards a backstroke wedge for the pool.

The Result…

The swimmers raised an amazing €190! Together with a donation from coach Karen’s fundraising dinner, we have a backstroke wedge in the post, on it’s way to the club!
