The 2015 Irish Schools Interpro swimming gala took place in the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin on May 10 with two Leitrim swimmers in action.

Representing Colaíste Cholmcille in Ballyshannon, Eanna O’Hara (14) from Kinlough was on the winning Ulster team while Dromahair’s Carrie McDaid (13) who attends the Ursuline Sligo was on the Connacht team.

The two Leitrim swimmers performed magnificently with both achieving PBs. In the Boys 13-14 100m Breaststroke, Eanna O’Hara got a time of 1.09.53 to finish first. He also went on to win the 200m IM event in a time of 2.19.19.

Carrie McDaid also had a great short course PB in the Girls 13-14 100m Freestyle event, finishing in 3rd place in a time of 1.01.76. Carrie was also a member of the winning Girls 13-14 200m Freestyle Relay team.

Eanna and Carrie also competed at Irish Open Swimming Championships and on that occasion they also equipped themselves excellently, swimming among the very best swimmers in the country and abroad.

The Interpro Cup, which Connacht won in 2014, was vigorously defended by the Connacht team but they were unfortunate to be piped in the final relays by Ulster.
