Easter Qualifying & Leinster Long Course

Last weekend thirteen swimmers from Sliabh Beagh competed in 50m galas.  The Swim Ulster Easter gala was held in Bangor and the Leinster long course was held in the NAC.  This was one of the last opportunities for swimmers to gain qualifying times for the age group competitions later in the season.
