Swim a Mile

Well done to all our participants who completed the Swim a Mile Programme with us recently. The Mile challenge took place on Sunday April 15, and everyone was successful in completing the Mile. We also had some participants join us who hadn’t completed the training programme.

Special thanks to Niall from Aura Leitrim Leisure who coached the participants and done an excellent job. Well done to all involved.
