War Memorial 2021 Swim Ulster Commemorated the 100th Edition of this meet in the very impressive new South Lake Leisure Centre in Craigavon. This is one of the highlight meets of the season in Ulster and was sorely missed in 2020. Looking forward to a return to an unrestricted meet in 2022.

The format of this meet departed from its predecessor, The Qualifying Meet, as...

We are very pleased to annouce that we managed to raise a total of £600 through donations in memory of our late Club President, Jack Beattie.

The money was used to purchase 2 hand held Doppler machines, and we were able to present it to Dorothy, District Nursing Sister today (with Stan and Colin Beattie). This will allow the 3 community nursing teams to now have 3 machines between them and provide the best care, as Jack was so...
