Bake Sale Fundraiser , Saturday 6th June, Ballyfermot


Once again, time to dust off your bun tins and baking trays, and start planning some treats for our most popular Annual Fundraiser.

We will hold the Bake Sale on Saturday 6th June, in Ballyfermot Sport and Leisure Centre.  Kick-off will be approx. 8.30am, and we plan to be there until around 11.30am, depending on how much we sell on the day.  If possible, we may be back for the Junior session that evening.

Please support the club by donating home-baked goodies on the day, we will be accepting donations from 8am in the morning.  Anything that you can do would be much appreciated, if you are shy on the baking front, we will need volumteers to help on the day.

Please contact any Committee member if you can do anything to help out.


Another UPDATE . . Wexford “Last Chance” Gala Sunday 14th June

Wexford Swimming Club Logo

Please see attached link for details of the Wexford “Last Chance” Gala, which takes place on Sunday 14th June.

“Last Chance” refers to qualifying times for Irish Age Group Division 1.  It was initially intended that qualifying times would allow entry into IAG Division 2 (Limerick), but this is now in dispute, as Swim Ireland have advised Wexford that they will not allow late entries to this event.  If this changes, we will update as soon as possible.

We are hoping to organise a coach to take our swimmers and parents to this event, so we are hoping for a good turnout.  It’s a great opportunity to have a fun day out, at an away gala, something that we don’t do often enough.

Please see the Events list on the link for details of events.  If in any doubt, please consult the coaches before submitting entries.

Entries are €6 per event, and the closing date is Friday 5th June.  Entries on Gala Envelopes please.
