Belparkers bring home the silverware at Masters Gala

Triathlon Ireland and Swim Ireland have a dual-membership that allows members of each organisation to access a wider range of activities in each other’s sports. On Sunday 14th October, over 12 Belparkers raced in the Dublin Swimming Club Masters Gala in Tallaght. Masters Swimming caters for all swimmers over the age of 18.

There was some fantastic racing on the evening and Belpark dominated in a few events!

Well done to all who raced! Check out the results tab for times!! Many thanks to Dublin Swimming Club for organising the gala.
