The 2018 Irish National Division 2 Competition takes place in UL Sport, Limerick this Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th July.

Eleven New Ross Swimmers have acheived  hard earned times for this end of season second division national competition.

Senior swimmers Jack Coode, Cillian Foley and  Danielle Colfer lead the march, all three experienced swimmers at national level.

In the junior category, Jaden Chan, attending his second division 2  is joined by several first timers including Laura Connell, Rosin Kenny,  Phelim O' Connor, Cael Colfer, Eva Bayley, Tiernan Foley and Donnacha McCarthy.

This is the first year of a new qualification pathway, where swimmers have only a limited oppertunity to qualify for national events, such is the competition at this level. 

We wish all of our young swimmers the very best over the 4 days. The warm spell does make competition conditions even more challenging for the eleven, but they have been following a well considered training programme developed by Head Coach Fran Ronan and we hope to see good perfomrances from the team.
