Laois Marlins members recorded great times at recent provincial competitions, which were held in the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.

For the first time ever seven swimmers contested the Leinster Distance Gala - Toni Dolan, Tyler Dolan, Eoin Donoghue, Conor Donoghue , Mathew Doyle, Thomas Martin, Ian Heffernan and Jordan Overton, with all seven swimming personal bests in the 200m and 400m events, Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly and Individual Medley.

Twelve Marlins competed in the 50m and 100m Leinster Graded Gala, with all twelve gaining promotion to higher grades, and swimmers such as Aidan Nealon, Mathew Doyle, Conor Donoghue , Eoin Donoghue and Jordan Overton shaving double digits off previous times.

Well done to all involved.
