The course will run for 6 weeks (excluding School Mid-Term Oct. 27th) at Lota pool, Brothers of Charity, Lower Glanmire Road, Cork. (40min classes). We will improve your stroke and help you swim more efficiently – and as a result, faster. We will also give you advice on how to train properly and smartly (Interval Training). Those interested in improving their swim times for Triathlons can expect to see a strong improvement. Brian Clifford swam for Ireland in the 1972 Olympics.
