Well done to Cian Foley and Denis Kilbride (New Ross Swimming Club) who represented Team Leinster at the Stockport Metro Open Meet in the UK 21/22 nd of November.

Both lads received fantastic ‘Personal Bests’ (PB’s) and age group placings. Enjoying the longer distance swims, the boys enjoyed particular success in the 1500 m where Cian finished 5th and Denis 2nd.

Cian also finishing in the top 4 in the 200 breast after improving his personal best by over 7 seconds this season . While the special moment for Denis was going under the 60 second barrier for the first time in the 100 freestyle.

Meanwhile, over the same weekend, three other club members attended the Distance graded Gala in the NAC. Stuart Vaughen, Cillian Foley and Caoimhe Daly all gained PB’s in their individual swims.

The Club will launch its 2016 calendar shortly. As always local businesses have been hugely supportive in this new venture. Thanks to photographer Mary Browne, the calendar will feature all swimmers, squads, and coaches, and is sure to be a big hit!
