Limerick Irish Open Masters Gala

Last Friday and Saturday the Irish Masters Long Course Gala was held in the UL Arena, Limerick.  393 swimmers attended this increasingly popular gala from 65 Clubs.  1425 events were on the programme, which ranged from 50m to 1,500m.  All strokes and IM and relays were included.

Sliabh Beagh had two entrants, Peter O’Hara and Marcin Tobias.  However, Marcin had to withdraw as he was suffering from the flu the previous week. Peter went ahead, even though he too had been under the weather all the previous week and only got a light session in on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.

Others attending that have a connection with the club were Mary Bramley, who swam in the 400 Freestyle and won her age group.

Our senior coach Agnieszka Wysocka- Khan who is registered under the Dungannon Club at present, also competed and came away very satisfied setting Irish records in 4 events in the process

The results were as follows:

  • Mary Bramley: 1st 400 Freestyle.
  • Peter O Hara: 1st overall for 50 Freestyle and 100 Butterfly, 2nd overall for 50 Butterfly and 3rd overall 100 Freestyle.
  • Agnieszka Wysocka-Khan: 2nd overall 50 Backstroke, 1st overall 50 Butterfly Irish Record, 1st overall 100 Butterfly Irish record, 1st overall 50 Freestyle Irish Record, 1st overall 200 Butterfly Irish Record.
