Everyone in Claremorris will be cheering for two teams from Gaelscoil Uileog de Búrca in Claremorris have qualified to represent their school in the all Ireland Minor Schools swimming champions to be held in Galway this coming weekend (10th March). This is considered a great achievement in swimming circles, given that the Gaelscoil is a small rural school just outside of Claremorris with just over 100 pupils.

The two qualifying teams competed in the Connacht schools championships in January to secure their all Ireland places, competing against several much larger schools with strong swimming histories.
The girls relay teams will compete in the finals of the medley and free style relay competitions.
