Weekly update + Training

Weekly update

Another mixed bag on the weather front but a good week of training put in by all anyhow. There are only a few weeks left in the winter schedule before we shake things up for the upcoming summer / race season so keep up the effort!! It will all stand to you in the summer when it comes to the races!!!


Club training weekend 2:

Plans are well underway for the second of our club training weekends that is due to take place March 26-27 so hopefully there will be a good turn up at each of the sessions that are being arranged. The timetable will be similar in format to the first weekend and we will post the official programme in the coming weeks. Keep the date free in your diary!!!! Any suggestions etc. as always let a committee member know, message on the Viber group or email (

Try a Tri 2016:

As many of ye will already be aware Try a tri is taking place in conjunction with the Lions club on Saturday June 11th. Entries for this event are open and we would hope that there would be a good showing from members of the club at this fun event. Everyone who takes part in this sport has to start somewhere and this is an ideal platform so showcase our sport to members of the public in town who would not otherwise attempt a triathlon event. The success of a club comes through the membership and an event such as this is vital to expanding the club and giving people an opportunity to take part and progress within the sport. It promises to be a good day and it is for local causes so if you are free on this day then sign up for a bit of craic!!!!

Any questions etc can be emailed to
