Don’t forget to enter for July 3rd, on Active now.
During a review of the 2017 Myrtleville to Church Bay event, it was noted that some participants commented that there were only prizes for first to third in male and female categories. Other boys and girls felt left out and went home feeling sad that they didn’t get a prize. “Other swims give everyone a prize”, said one commenter. “I deserve a medal too”, said
Pat Lowry another sad boy.
Responding to this feedback, the non-committee of the Church Bay swim conducted a call for voluntary sponsors, in order that an expanded range of prizes would be on offer. While we won’t have one for everybody in the audience, there will be more winning swimmers. We are delighted to announce four new categories, prizes and sponsors.
Given that this is a new departure for our event, we felt it was appropriate to allow each sponsor to nominate – or indeed, invent – the category for which their prize would be awarded. The criteria for each winner were decided by the various sponsors.
The additional prizes to be competed for on July 3rd are:
We are hopeful that we will receive further similar no-strings-attached sponsorship offerings. Great to see the generosity of our sponsors.

The more Myrtleville swimmers and beach users who know CPR, the better. Here’s a great opportunity to get free training next Sunday.
Carrigaline Community First Responders are running a Free CPR Awareness and Training day on Sunday 15th April 2018 from 10.00am to 6.00pm in the Carrigaline Court Hotel.
The main aim of this event is to provide Free Hands only CPR Training to as many of the public as possible on the day. It is also to raise the awareness of the importance of providing immediate assistance in the event of Cardiac Arrest, in the form of excellent quality compressions.
As part of the community awareness day the Carrigaline Community First Responder have organised free Health screening for anyone who wishes to avail of it. This screening will be run by qualified nurses and EMTs. It is completely confidential and carried out in a secluded setting.
The Hands-only CPR awareness day has been very kindly supported by Janssen Sciences Ireland and the Carrigaline Court Hotel.
