Irish Nationals

Irish Nationals (29 April - 2 May) will have an interesting feel to them this year. The Irish swimmers will have the company of the National Club Swimming Association (NCSA) All-Star Team from the US. This team consists of some of US Swimming's top 15-18 year olds and was selected based on results from the NCSA Junior National Championships (held March 16-27 this year). The US Juniors feature consistently in the top 5 of most events and should offer some excellent competition for the home swimmers whilst gaining valuable international experience themselves. With 2 years to go before London 2012 we may get a preview of some future Team USA members swimming here in Ireland.

Ireland's own European Junior Champion and rising star Grainne Murphy is down to swim 100m Fly and 200m Back. Barry Murphy, who swims in the US for Tennessee, will be competing in the 50m Breast, 100m Breast and 50m Free.

Some top names from British Swimming will also be attending. Hannah Miley, Andy Hunter, Lucy Ellis, Georgia Davis and Jak Scott are all down to compete.
