Louth Irish Wa­ter Safety win­ners

The Argus - - NEWS - By OLIVIA RYAN

THE Louth Irish Wa­ter Safety branch are celebrating their par­tic­i­pa­tion in na­tional cham­pi­onships re­cently

Both ju­nior and se­nior Teams trav­elled to the Univer­sity Of Limerick (UL) in mid- Fe­bru­ary to com­pete in the Irish Wa­ter Safety Still Wa­ter Na­tional Cham­pi­onships.

‘A great week­end of com­pe­ti­tion with solid per­for­mances across all lev­els , both in­di­vid­ual and teams,’ said Ma­jella Don­nelly, Louth Irish Wa­ter Safety.

‘ Their per­for­mances in­di­cate how their train­ing and ded­i­ca­tion to the sport over the last few months has paid off so well.

All of the com­peti­tors have done their county proud and de­liv­ered top per­for­mances.’

In­deed, many con­tes­tants who took part in the na­tional event have had ex­ten­sive train­ing last year and took part in pre­vi­ous Euro­pean (or international) events.

Some of the mem­bers of Louth Wa­ter Safety teams even achieved their per­sonal best at the com­pe­ti­tion.

With the end of the still wa­ter sea­son, apart for the Nip­per Life­sav­ing event in Kilkenny on 31st March, the surf life­savers will now turn their fo­cus to the beaches.

They will take to the beaches for the sum­mer months, and many will be em­ployed as beach­life­guards to keep the pub­lic safe and men­tored dur­ing the sum­mer sea­son from June to Septem­ber.

Louth Wa­ter Safety are de­lighted to re­spond to any re­quests for in­for­ma­tion about their work and cour­ses, train­ing be­ing pro­vided. For all en­quires with re­gards to the wa­ter safety class or up­com­ing sum­mer weeks please con­tact louth­wsac@ gmail.com
