As the Number One not-a-club swimming movement in the world, Myrtleville Swimmers are always willing to lend a hand to new like-minded associations. Over the weekend, on a brief trip to Fountaina’, we were delighted to meet representatives of a new local swimmers movement to be known as “Fountainstown For Swimmers” (FFS, for short).
FFS spokesperson, Marie Watson – together with non-committee members, Brenda Sisk and Pat Lowry – explained the motivation of the new movement as being to get as many current Myrtleville Swimmers to move over to the wide open spaces of Fountainstown as possible. Ms. Watson was at pains to point out that FFS was a wholly inclusive movement and absolutely everyone currently
taking up my parking swimming in Myrtleville was welcome to move over there as soon as possible.
“We have mountains of parking and room for everyone”, said Ms. Watson. “We really, really want the multitudes in Myrtleville to come over here to join us. Nothing would make us happier”. It is understood that Myrtlevillians resident in Fountainstown will throw open their doors to offer hot showers and BBQs to all FFS associates (they have not actually been told this as yet, but it’ll be grand. Breda and Daniel are sound.).
Local swimmer, Bernie Lynch – interviewed on de telly by Virgin Media about the new movement – was vocal in his endorsement. “C’mere, until about 2012 ’twas grand down in Myrtleville. ‘Twas just meself, Pat, Tom and de odd extra fiend some days. Den dis langer came along and set up a website. Now I’m walkin’ from de shop here to Myrtleville cos dere’s no parking. I mean, at least it’s better dan de traffic bandidos of de Wild West down by d’Island, but it’s still a feckin pain. FFS is right. I’m all for it. Go, FFS and take dat shaggin website with ye!”
Given such staunch support, this langer will be throwing all available resources of the shaggin website behind the new movement and encouraging the promotion of it through the twitter hashtag #GoFFS. Join the movemement, people! Go, FFS!!
