Session 2 warm up 2.00pm, start 2.30pm.

Limerick Results and Awards!

Firstly, a huge congratulations is in order to everyone who took part at this year's Irish Long Course Masters Championships in Limerick. A huge vote of thanks is also in order to Limerick Masters for hosting this great event, and to all the officials, timekeepers and organisers that make it so successful. We had our own success of course; Aer Lingus Masters won Club of the Year! Above is our own Vivian Mongey accepting the trophy.

This was not, however, the only trophy Viv would be taking home from Limerick.
We are also proud to announce that both the male and female trophies for the Swim Ireland Decathalon Award 2016 were presented to Vivian Mongey and Dymphna Morris.

To be in with a chance of winning the Decathlon Award, swimmers needed to compete in ten different events in all the different stroke events, the distance freestyle and individual medley events over the course of the year. This was a true test of versatility and endurance for Masters swimmers.

The full list of results are available here.
