Tom O’Ceallaigh rallied his troops of family, friends and members of Clonmel Swimming Club who all did a super job co-ordinating the county finals of the swimming championships which went like clockwork in Clonmel pool on Sunday last.
Young ladies from all over the county took part.
Powerstown-Lisronagh won four gold and four silver medals. Nell McCarthy had her competitors in great form with the Whelan sisters Siobhan and Moya and the Hurley sisters Megan and Isabel responsible for the gold.
Thurles won four gold, two silver and one bronze, Cashel Rosegreen won three gold, two silver and one bronze while Kilsheelan-Kilcash won two gold, two silver and a bronze medal.
Results show there was a wide distribution of medals with very few areas leaving empty handed which is what the games are all about.
Thanks to Margaret Burke-Hogan, South Tipperary Community Games CE Supervisor, for her valuable services, to all area managers, to the Manager and staff at Clonmel Pool and everybody who contributed to the success of this very competitive event.
All winners will now represent County Tipperary at the National Finals of the HSE Community Games in Athlone Regional Sports Centre on the weekend of May 24 to 26. They are now requested to please send a copy of their birth certificate and a passport type photograph to their area secretary if they have not been to the national finals before. The County Final of the Boys events will take place in Clonmel on Sunday, March 3. Closing date for entries with firstname.lastname@example.org is February 24.
