After a successful swim year of tough Training & Competitions, Marlins SC had great representation at the All-Ireland Community Games Swimming in Athlone taking home four All Ireland medals.
Cora Rooney (Donegal), one of the youngest swimmers in the Club and a Gold Medalist last year took a Silver Medal in the u-10 Freestyle, Odhran O’Hara (Leitrim) taking a Silver in u-10 Freestyle, Mouric McSharry (Sligo) took a hard earned Bronze Medal while his sister Mona (Sligo) took a well deserved Gold for a second year in a row and this year in u-14 Breastroke.
As well as the medalists, Killian Bradshaw (Donegal) came a magnificent 5th in the u-8 freestyle while a large number of other swimmers made it out of the heats and into the Semi-finals.
