Galway Triathlon Club – Supporting the Community

first_imgGalway Triathlon Club (GTC) recently held another successful Aquathon Series which involved six weekly 750m Swim and 5km run events. In total, over 70 members from GTC, Predator Tri Club and Tri Sport took part. As part of engaging with the community, GTC agreed that any funds generated through the Aquathon Series fee would be donated to support the Octopus Swimming Club.Octopus Swimming Club, which was founded in 1981 and based in Kilcornan, Galway, is no ordinary swimming club. It operates using the ‘Halliwick’ concept, which is suitable for all and is particularly suited to people with disabilities – be it spinal cord, amputee, head injury, stroke, spina-bifida, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, visual impairment and also people who are fearful of water – to become “water free”.Mary Arrigan, the founder, explains that “If somebody is in a wheelchair all day, it is great to see their reaction when you put them in water and see their body move and be free. When they start, we teach them to become balanced in the water and to have good breath control so they become relaxed. And when somebody is completely relaxed, they can float and eventually they can move and swim.” The club, which has over forty members ranging in age from 8 to 74 are extremely grateful of the support from Galway Triathlon Club.The Galway Triathlon Committee identified the connection between the clubs with both clubs promoting physical activity through a strong emphasis on swimming, and also social connections. Like GTC members, the members of the Octopus Swimming Club are extremely positive and determined in taking on new challenges.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Pictured is David Kennedy (Octopus Swimming Club) receiving the donation from Karl Prendergast (Galway Tri Club Committee).

Galway 0-10 Dublin 0-7 – National Camogie League

first_imgprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Galway got the defence of their Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League Division 1 title off to a winning start, coming out the right side of a 0-10 to 0-7 scoreline at TU Blanchardstown. The All-Ireland champions looked rusty but credit must go to a Dublin side that was getting the season under way under new managers John Treacy and Willie Braine without a number of key players for a variety of reasons. Scores proved hard to come by but the visitors led by three moving into the second quarter, points from Rebecca Hennelly (two), Caitriona Cormican and goalkeeper Sarah Healy from a long-distance free giving them the edge. Dublin finished the half strongly though and a couple of points from Sinéad Wylde had them well in touch at the interval, trailing by 0-5 to 0-3. The hosts got to within one of Galway twice in the second period but the experienced All-Ireland champions always put a little bit more daylight between the sides. Martha Donoghue split the posts soon after the resumption and when Carrie Dolan and Niamh Kilkenny stretched the gap to three, Wylde and Kerrie Finnegan got it back to the minimum again with 40 minutes elapsed. Healy landed her second monster point and Hennelly converted two frees for Cathal Murray’s contingent to take the verdict. After the game, Galway manager Cathal Murray spoke to Tommy Devane…last_img read more
