‘Dub’le Weekend Delight for Dublin SC (June 16/17 2012)
At the inaugural Meath Masters race at Lough Lene in Co Westmeath, Maeve Dunne of Dublin Swimming Club held off the concerted challenge of Phoenix swimmers to take first position.
This was followed up on Sunday when Caroline Kiernan, in her first season, won at Sandycove. She broke free of the pack to win, beating another Dublin swimmer, Sharon Pickering. The women also won the team prize. First home for the Dublin men was the forever young John Pickering, while at Lough Lene, Niall O'Sullivan made it into the Top 10. Well done folks and let's hope for more success at our club race on the 24th and beyond.
Good luck all for 2012 Open Water Season
A Message from Club President
As the Open Water season kicks off for 2012, I'd like to wish all our swimmers a successful, happy and safe summer of swimming. It's a packed calendar this year, with four additional races. 2011 brought great success for both the men's and women's team. This year we have a lot of new swimmers, so best wishes to them in particular.
Our own club swim takes place in Killiney on June 24. A big thank you to Mairead who is co-ordinating this event and to Eileen who will be Safety Officer on the day. If you would like to help out, please email Mairead using the form below.
Keep an eye on our website for updates and news throughout the summer. Enjoy!
Niall O'Sullivan, June 2012
