The 2011 Santa Swim in aid of The Carers Association and St Michael’s House, is set to take place this weekend, Saturday November 12 and Sunday November 13 in swimming pools nationwide, including on Westmeath at Mullingar Swimming Pool.
A group of five present and past swimmers from Castlebar Swimming Club, Katie Tuohy (NUI Maynooth), James Caulfield (NUI Galway), Conal Joyce (Dublin IT), James Sweeney and Sarah Caulfield (UCD), took part in the Irish Swimming and Lifesaving Intervarsities in Kilkenny, each representing his/her respective colleges. The event, hosted by NUI Maynooth (NUIM), proved to be a great success with most of the universities and institutes of technology present. For the course of this event the Castlebar swimmers had to set aside their club loyalties, and in Sarah and James Caulfield’s case family loyalty and give it their all for their colleges. Friday evening saw the start of the competition with the swimming heats and what a start it proved to be. Competition was fierce with many national champions in attendance including Olympian Aisling Cooney (UCD). However, the Castlebar crew held their own and in some cases raced against each other in the same events to reach the finals session on Saturday morning.
