Club History-Can you Help?
Dublin Swimming has a proud history dating back to 1881. We are currently seeking a volunteer to help us document our history, the many interesting founding members and the club's place in the development of the sport in Ireland, to interview many of our more senior members who have a wealth of information and stories and to perhaps also to help prepare an engaging new history section of our website.
This could be an incredibly interesting project and might suit a student, retired person or simply someone with an interested in sport and history. Please contact us through the 'Contact Us' section of this website.
