Swimming Success

We were delighted to learn today that Cameron Jackson has done St Brigid’s proud in the All Ireland Schools Irish Nationals.
For the under 9 category, each child entered  two strokes..all the training, hard work and passion  paid off in the end and he won the silver in 50mtr freestyle & bronze in the backstroke. We couldn’t be prouder!

National Swimming Finals

Cameron Jackson who is in 3rd class is representing St Brigids in the Irish national swimming schools finals on Sunday. Unfortunately he was the only qualifier from St. Brigids at Leinster qualifiers in Oct. All the top underage swimmers in Ireland compete in this tournament & qualifying for it is an achievement in itself. He will be racing in the 50 meter freestyle & back crawl. His Dad says he has been absolutely flying in training & he has a really good chance in qualifying out of his heat into the final 10 in both disciplines. The competition including heats & finals are on in NAC on this Sunday. We all wish him well and hope he has a great tournament.
