Thank you letter regarding our recently held Masters Gala


We received the following correspondence from Adrian O’Connor, who swam in the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.

“Thanks for your email, I really enjoyed the gala; it was exactly what I needed – a good variety of tough well run races to get me back in line. I thought the challenge was a brilliant idea and it’s lovely to have received a prize, it’s much appreciated. 

Well done on the gala and thanks to all who made it possible, 

Adrian”

Tipperary Tiger Sharks Gala

Our sincere apologies but following a committee meeting this evening, a decision was taken to postpone our upcoming Gala on the 24th March due to the late notification of renovation works at the Sean Treacy Memorial Pool and the related health and safety concerns. We appreciate that this will cause inconvenience to many clubs but unfortunately this is outside of our control. We hope to reschedule the gala to run on a different date in the next few weeks and will advise of the date as soon as we can confirm same.

We would like to thank you for your invaluable support to date and look forward to seeing your club at our rescheduled gala, if you are still in a position to attend.
