History

The ESB Swimming Club was Established in 1949 as a recreational club for the employees of ESB Networks and we still value and enjoy our strong links with ESB Group. The club is currently based in the SPORTSCO Complex in Dublin 4, having use of their 6 lane 25m pool.

ESB club swimmers have achieved considerable success at national and international level, including Aisling Cooney who represented Ireland at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Our older swimmers are encouraged to gain life-guarding and swim coaching qualifications and many continue their swimming careers at University - for instance, the UCD Swim Team have had a number of ESB 'alumni' over the years.
