We are deeply saddened by the news of the sudden death of Robbie Whelan last evening. Robbie was our Club Children’s Officer, a diligent and enthusiastic parent and so many of us benefitted from his encyclopedic knowledge of swimming. We will miss him so much, but most importantly our sympathies and our love go out to Joanne, Killian and Sarah today and always.

As a mark of respect to Robbie all training will be suspended until further notice.

Rest in Peace Robbie

Fintan O’Mahony
Club Chairperson
