Leinster Distance / Qualifying Gala - 15 Oct 17
Full Gala details and Hy-Tek Meet Events files for the Leinster Distance / Qualifying gala on Oct 15th have been finalised, and are herewith attached.

As the Schools Gala is also a qualifying event, swimmers have the opportunity, between both events, of registering qualifying times for the Leinster and Irish SC Championships, to be held in November and December respectively.

Please note the closing date of October 2nd, the age-related qualifying times, and that NT entries will not be accepted for this gala.

2018 Meet Licence Guidelines
Attached please find the updated 2018 Meet Licence Guidelines and Criteria. An updated application form will be issued in due course.

As part of the application process, all clubs in Leinster wishing to hold/host a competition must apply to Leinster Swimming for a date to hold their competition. We will collate the calendar for the region and work with clubs to ensure there are limited/no clashes with dates.

Any club events not included on the calendar by the closing date, may not be eligible to receive a licence at a later date, as part one of the process is to apply for a date in advance of the season. The season plan is attached so you can see available weekends.

Please note that no competitions can be permitted to be held on the same weekend as a National Competition, and no competitions are permitted to be held the weekend of the Swim Ireland Congress/Awards or the day of the Swim Ireland AGM (these dates are noted on the Season Plan).

Could you please submit your requested dates by Sunday July 16th, to We will review the dates, sort out any clashes and submit the calendar to Swim Ireland to be included on the National calendar along with the other regions. This will then be published on the Swim Ireland website.
