Battling Performances in Clontarf
Michelle Dunne really put the foot down towards the end of her 1,500m to score a memorable victory at the Bull Wall, just defeating a plethora of NAC swimmers in the process. While there were no Vikings out a tall ship had passed by earlier on what was a cool evening with winds coming from the northern parts of Europe. In the men's race, Niall O'Sullivan claimed 7th place and the vets prize. Good numbers out and look forward to seeing ye out the weekend (and not a jellyfish to be seen).
Goo luck to our Lough Dann swimmers on Saturday.

Great Dublin Swims
Our great Dublin men's team won the inaugural Great Dublin Swim on August 9, 2014. Well done to Colin, Stuart, Barry and Niall, holding off the ILDSA team who came second. The men score three age category medals also. Congrats also to Roisin and Julie Ann who also flew the Dublin SC flag, again winning prizes in their age groups. John and Ruth also completed in their first open water races for Dublin, completing the earlier 750m race. Click here for a photo of the prize giving.
Belated congrats to Tara Smyth who won the Thomond Swim (River Shannon) at the end of July and to her sister Sharon who came third. (Limerick) you are our ladies...
