In order to comply with new Swim Ireland regulations, we have had to make it compulsory for all swimmers to be members of Swim Ireland before entering for the swim. If you are already a competitive member of any Swim Ireland affiliated club, in any aquatic discipline, this does not affect you.
In order to become a member of Swim Ireland, you need to join any swimming, diving, water-polo, masters, synchro or open-water club which is affiliated to Swim Ireland, for most of you, it may be easiest for you to join the new Sandycove Island Swim Club. Contact Ned Denison at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining.
Many of you may be members of Swim Ireland but may have non-competitive status. You can change your status to competitive so that you can take part in open-water events by contacting your club.
If you have any questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact me on +353 87 2278242.
