Who Are We!


If you are interest in Trojan masters, we are a small group of five masters swimmers (all former competitive swimmers) who usually travel together to competitions in Ireland and the UK. We have competed at European Masters Championships (Stockholm and Slovenia) and World Masters Championships (Gothenberg) and British gas Masters. However this year three of our group are abroad and we often only see each other at competitions.


We have training in Newpark Sports Centre every morning 07:15-8:30am in a public adult coached session on a pay as you go basis. Depending on our numbers we usually unofficially comandeer a lane or two, training with a few other regulars who don't compete. However newpark is currently closed until Spetember and we are training most mornings in Loughlinstown leisure centre.


If you are interested you are welcome to come down and swim with us any morning. Usually Thursday and Tuesday mornings are the best attended.
