Celebrating our Olympian, Nicholas Quinn, Rio de Janeiro August 2016.

To the Business and Sporting Communities in Castlebar:

Last April a local swimmer, 23 year old Nicholas Quinn (from Sarnaught and previously The Turlough Road) qualified to represent Ireland at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August 2016. Nicholas is the son of John & Mary Quinn (nee Sheridan) and younger brother to Darragh & Fionnuala. Mary was the owner of "Beanstalk" a popular craft/gift shop, on Market Square and New Antrim St, prior to moving abroad a couple of years ago. Nicholas is a past pupil of Scoil RaifteirĂ­ & St Gerald's College, Castlebar.

Nicholas learned to swim in Castlebar Swimming Club and progressed through the various levels under the expert guidance of his Coaches Marian English & Joe Moran, to reach his ultimate goal of qualifying to swim for Ireland at the Olympic Games.

To mark this wonderful achievement for a member of the Club, we are asking all local businesses, sporting organisations, community groups and the people of Castlebar to show your support for Nicholas in the build up to the games and during the games themselves.

We would be delighted if you could lend your support for Nicholas by decorating the town (streets, shopfronts, windows, roads, roundabouts, club facilities) with flags, bunting, good luck signs and messages of support.

The Olympic Games commence on Friday August 5th when Nicholas will be part of the Irish Olympic team at the game's Opening Ceremony. Nicholas will swim his Breastroke events in the "Olympic Aquatic Stadium" on Saturday August 6th & Tuesday August 9th and hopefully in the subsequent days also.

If you need any more information, please don't hesitate to contact either myself or our Club PRO Darina Molloy on (087) 9809471

Thanking you in anticipation;
Yours Sincerely
