Update in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Members

Following the abrupt cessation of training in mid-March in accordance with advice from our national governing body Swim Ireland, we wanted to touch base with you all to tell you where we stand.

As you know our venue (Forest Park Leisure Centre) is now closed, with no clear return to full service date yet available. It is therefore very unlikely we will be back training together this year. It is disappointing for many of you who have trained hard and reached PBs this year but all we can do is focus on what we can do instead of what we cannot.

While we all grapple with our new way of life — working and studying at home —it’s important to remember the vital role sport and exercise plays in managing stress. To this end, Jemma will continue to distribute training plans via WhatsApp and we encourage you all to take a daily open-air break (within that 2km limit).

We’re only an email or WhatsApp away for any questions you may have,

Stay safe and well


Courtown Swim Club Committee
