*Lewis O’Dwyer collected another gold medal.
Leah O’Connor, Reuben Haugh, Claudia Haugh, Jack Dilleen and Lewis O’Dwyer all won gold medals as Ennis Swimming Club hosted the Munster Development 2 Meet on Sunday.
Deferred one day due to the Storm Jorge, the extra wait didn’t put dampen spirits as 250 young swimmers warmed up for the gala with eleven clubs represented.
Gold medals were obtained for the hosts by Leah O’Connor, Reuben Haugh, Claudia Haugh, Jack Dilleen and Lewis O’Dwyer. Lianda McGuire, Claudia Haugh, Fatima Sanchez, Tadhg Conway, Jude Collins, Olivia Cosgrove, Ella Taylor, Jamie Cantillon and Noah Doherty all got their hands on silver medals.
Securing third place bronze medals in their events were Leah O’Connor, Edith Haugh, Reuben Haugh, TJ Moore, Olivia Cosgrove, Ciara Mulligan and Bruno Sanchez. On top of this, several of the Clare swimmers smashed new personal bests in different events.
A bake sale for the Irish Heart Foundation in memory of late coach, Niall Cosgrove raised over €350. “We would like to thank all those that donated and to acknowledge the parents who helped out on the day and the wonderful staff of Active Ennis Swimming Pool for accommodating the change of date,” a spokesperson for ESC told The Clare Echo. The Ennis Invitational takes place on April 11th.
