Last weekend we had three teams participating in the Grads Tournament in Belfast, on Friday night our U12 (2003) team were in action playing 5 matches and winning the tournament in a thrilling final against Clonard. This was another great achievement for this team following on from their U12 Irish Cup win earlier in the year. On the Saturday and Sunday it was the turn of the Boys and Girls 2000 born players, the Boys lost out in a place in the Semi Finals were the Girls got through in the Semi’s loosing out to Donegal Diamonds in another great game finishing 8-7 to Donegal. We would like to thank Joe Connolly and all the other organisers from Grads for another great tournament and we will be back next year.

Two in a row for Clontarf SC

Yesterday Saturday 15th 2015 August, Brian Nolan came home first in the Aer Lingus Sea Swim at Portmarnock Beach with a handicap of 8.45, this was a fantastic swim, coming from the back passing 146 other swimmers to get the Win. This also brings Brian’s total number of Sea Swim wins to 12 level with the Club record held by R.H (Richie) Case since 1939. We also had the first two in a row for a Father and Son after Sean Nolan had another great win in Wicklow last week and also this is the first time ever since the Club started open Sea swimming nearly 100 years ago that we have had 4 Open Sea Swim Wins in a Season. Well done again to all the Swimmers taking part, with still a few more races left to go you never know.
