A big thank you goes to all of our volunteers for helping during the Gala. A special mention goes to our two team managers, Sharon and Rachel who worked tirelessly throughout the week.

The biggest thank you of all goes to our Head Coach, Martin J McGann who covered every session and warm up on his own.

He should be very proud of his swimmers breaking lots of Club records, setting new PBs in almost every event and final and a new Irish Junior Record, 2 Ulster Junior records and 2 Ulster Senior Records, 2 European Junior Championships Considerations times, and 2 World
Championships Considerations times.

The Lisburn boys even topped the medal table for the most successful club.

The meet ended nicely with an interview on the live stream with the Swim Ireland Performance Director, Jon Rudd who named Daniel’s 800m freestyle swim supported by Martin’s Coaching as the Junior performance of the meet.
