A little background to the Club ..............

Glenalbyn Masters Swimming Club

 

The Club has about 150 members and is affliated to Swim Ireland.  It was based at Glenalbyn Pool in Stillorgan, Co Dublin but the pool has now closed for redevelopment.  In the meantime the Club remains fully operational and has regular training sessions at Loughlinstown Pool and Blackrock College Pool.  

 

The Club is a Masters Club meaning that it caters for people from 19 up to 90, or beyond, rather than for younger swimmers.  (There is a separate Glenalbyn Swimming Club that caters for those under 19.)  Our members compete both in galas and sea races.  The Club has elite swimmers who travel to European and even World Masters events, some of whom hold Irish masters record times.  It also has a long tradition of particiaption in sea races and is consistently near the top of the rankings in the Leinster Open Sea races.

 

But many members have no ambitions to win medals but are happy to just compete or simply train to keep fit while other members also swim in the sea through the year.  

 

The Club has a wide range of swimming abilites and welcomes new members.

Current Committe:  John Barnewell, Frank Carroll, Peter Dodd, Maura Lanigan, Louise McCann, Patricia Murphy.
