Loreto win Spirit Award at Swimming Gala05 Dec 2014
On Thursday 20th, students travelled to the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin to compete in the Inter-Loreto Swimming Gala. The event saw a number of Loreto schools from around the country coming together and great success was had by the Clonmel team, which came away with five medals and the Loreto Spirit Award. Amy Fitzpatrick won gold in the U14 Backstroke. Sarah Hickey won bronze in the U16 Breaststroke. Hayley Pleskach won bronze in the O16 Freestyle, Eibhlín O’Brien won silver in the O16 Freestyle, whileNiamh O’Sullivan also won silver in the O16 Backstroke. This year we entered three teams in the relay events but were unfortunately unsuccessful in each. The students represented their school with great enthusiasm and vigor, led by our inspirational Transition Year cheerleaders, so it was without question that they also won the prestigious Spirit Award.
