Dear Parents,


Swimming for Rang I & II, Rang III & IV and Rang V & VI is due to commence on Friday, the 28th of September in Tralee Sports and Leisure Centre. The change of venue is due to the uncertainty surrounding Ballybunion Pool. The only slot available to us is Friday afternoon from 1.45p.m. to 2.30 p.m.


Children will need a bag with the following items:

  • Swim suit.
  • Towel.
  • Swimming Cap.
  • Brush or comb for long hair.
  • Plastic bag for wet togs.

If you have any difficulty with swimwear please tell a teacher as soon as possible.                  Goggles and flip flops are optional.
