THE strides being made among the youth in Kingdom Swimming Club were rewarded recently when eight members made the Munster swimming team squad.

The eight members, who range in age from 12 to 16, are Rory Boyd, Jack Costello, Aisling O’Connell, Kim McTigue, Joe Reidy, Grace Reidy, Evelyn Fox and Jack Doyle.

They started training about two weeks ago with the rest of the squad at the pool in University of Limerick and this training will run all the way until next summer.

“It’s a great achievement for them and this training will push them on to a higher level. The next step up from this international level,” said Pat McTigue of Kingdom Swimming Club.

The club’s swimmers have competed with great success at local, regional, national and international level in the past and with the current crop that success is sure to continue if they keep up their training and commitment.
