Sinead Mylett: Gold
Castlebar swimmers of all ages and levels had two very successful outings recently, which culminated in a raft of personal best times (PBs) and even some silverware. The first outing was not too far down the road to Claremorris, which hosted its A gala on March 9. In the 200m individual medley (IM), there were PBs for Fiona Conway (3:08.02), Edel Egan (2:46.53), Hazel Coen (2:46.71), Heather Fadden (2:50.84) and Siofra McHale (2:43.65). There were PBs galore for the boys, also, including Aaron Doherty (2:52.80), Ronan Dervan (3:09.14), Mark Dervan (2:24.85), Jamie Murphy (2:30.08), Nathan Rennick (2:35.79) and Conor Melly (2:39.20). Patrick Livingstone's PB also saw him achieving gold in his age group with a time of 2:19.00.
