Ian Daly Swim A Mile Saturday 28th March


Once again, Viking Swimming Club are proud to support the Ian Daly Swim A Mile with a Smile fundraiser.  Ian’s family have had a long association with our club, Brian and Laura have served on the committee, and his sister Emer swam with us for many years.  Ian died of a brain tumour in 2003, at the age of 11.  The Swim A Mile was set up to raise funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital and The Barrettstown Camp.  We would ask all members to support this very worthy cause.

Senior Squad members are invited to swim at 12pm on Saturday 28th March, in the NAC.  Sponsorship cards and swim hats will be available at all training sessions this week.  Senior swimmers can also complete the Swim A Mile at their training session on Saturday 4th April.

Junior Squad members will compete the Swim A Mile as part of their training session on Saturday 4th April.  Sponsorship cards swim hats will also be available at training sessions this week.

Further details of the work of Swim A Mile can be viewed at  www.swimamile.ie .

Traffic Update – N4 to Chapelizod Slip Road


We have been advised that from Monday 23rd of March, the slip road to Chapelizod from the N4 at Palmerstown will be CLOSED every night, and will re-open at 5.30am each morning.  Works are expected to take 2 weeks.

This will mean that Senior swimmers attending morning training sessions will have to take an alternative route, either turning right at the main lights in Palmerstown, or via Liffey Valley, to get to Ballyfermot.
