Sliabh Beagh Attend Leinster Graded Gala

Twenty Sliabh Beagh swimmers attended the Leinster Graded Gala in the NAC on Sunday 26th October. This was a great turn out for the club early in the season. Our swimmers competed along with some 600 other swimmers from across Leinster and other provinces in 50m and 100m across all strokes.  This Gala was a great opportunity for some swimmers new to competition to dip their toe in the competition pool and it was also an opportunity for some of the more experienced swimmers to test themselves over the shorter distances.  Congratulations to Colin Gorman who broke the minute in the 100 freestyle in a time of 58.95.  Also well done to
