Glynn Barntown's swimmers were in action in the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin at the weekend. We saw powerful performances in the first gala of the season, from all our swimmers, all getting PBs and some getting Leinster medals.

Eoin Allen, Eoghan Mahon, Adam Mahon, Stuart Vaughan, Kevin Mahony, Conor Mahony, Isabelle O'Connor, Chloe O'Connor and Neil Beaver. Georgina Steel and Sean Maher, both did enough to secure Irish Age group Division 2 places this year. But the star performer was Cameron Steel, who went under the minute barrier in the 100m freestyle, to guarantee his Irish Open Championship place next year. Well done also to Kieran Walsh from Piercestown who did the same, a huge achievement well done.


Hi everyone - those going to the Halloween Disco please be at the community centre at 8.30 pm on Friday night as the bus will be leaving at 8.45. Parents and guardians, please be at the community for the return of bus at 12.15 am.
