Louth Swimming Club celebrated another top year at their 34th championship presentation night at the town hall last week.

A capacity crowd filled the ballroom for the evening which featured Mayor of Louth Fran Treanor as special guest presenter, and club chairman Bob Wells as compere.

“I’d like to thank all the poolside teams for their passion and commitment as well as the committee and everyone involved in the club’s continued progression.

“This year’s events produced a staggering amount of personal best times and new or improved county qualifying times.

“Collectively it’s a fabulous achievement by all the swimmers.”

Events co-ordinator Charlotte Elliott-Wright and club secretary Katherine Billington oversaw the event, supported by a team of coaches, officials and poolside assistants.

Thanks also went to Kate Thompson, Charlotte Elliott-Wright, Dawn Waring, Lisa Barnett and Jen Heydon for making the many presentations run to time.
