Louth Irish Water Safety winners
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
