More success for Castlebar Swimmers at Aer Lingus Open 2002

Senior squad swimmers travelled to Dublin to take part in the Aer Lingus Open Gala on 22nd /23rd/24th November.

Cian Holland in his usual splendid form walked away with a Gold medal and prize money in the 16 and over 100 M Butterfly and a Silver medal in 50 M Butterfly. Cian has left the Leinster clubs asking "Who is this guy".

Darragh Quinn another fine swimmer made his mark by scooping a Bronze medal in a fiercely contested 100 M 14-15 100 M Breaststroke.

Laura English showed good form when taking on opponents from around the country and finished reserve finalist in Women 50 M Breaststroke. Laura also produced fine swims in 100 M Freestyle, 200 Backstroke, 200 Breaststroke, 200 IM and 100 M Butterfly.

Jimmy Wiseman gearing up for a busy season had good swims in Men 50 M Butterfly and 50 M Breaststroke.

Colm Garrick is going from strength to strength and had good swims in Mens 50 M Breaststroke, 200 M Backstroke and 50 M Backstroke.

Jill Magee showed her competitive edge in 200 M Backstroke and finished with a personal best time, her other swims included 50 M Freestyle 50 M Backstroke.

Dara Dever competing in the Men's 200 Meter Breaststroke had a very fine swim and produced a Nationals qualifying time, he also swam the 200 IM and again showed his mettle.

The results from this national event are a tribute to swimmers and coaches and auger well for a very good year from this squad of swimmers.


Again the local swimmers were in fine form at the distance meet which was held in the Castlebar pool.

Ciaran Garrick scooped Gold in the Senior 1500 Meter Freestyle, Silver in 400 M IM and 400 M Freestyle.
Anthony English took Gold in 13-14 age group 1500 M Freestyle.
Ciara McGowan took Gold in Senior Girls 400 M IM

Silver Medals were also won by Brian Moran in Senior 1500 M Freestyle, Sarah Wiseman in Senior 400 M Freestyle.

James Sweeney took Silver in 11-12 age group 800 M Freestyle.

Laura Keaveney took Silver in 13-14 age group 800 M Freestyle and Bronze Medal in the 400 M IM

A number of the younger swimmers in the club took on the longer distance swims for the first time and showed potential for future success over these demanding events.
