Swimming Gala – New York Fordham Prep School Visit Blackrock, 2019
The Visit of Fordham Prep School, New York
Sunday, 17th November 2019
Our Swimming Squad, families and coaches welcomed to Blackrock the boys and coaches of Fordham Prep. S.J. for a gala, at which we were joined by Clongowes, last Sunday morning 17th November. 63 races were completed with near military precision and with Fordham taking the Senior honours and Clongowes the Junior award.
Before the Gala, the hosting boys, their families and our visitors attended the Boarders Mass, a powerful liturgy said by Fr Healy with the choristers and cantors motivated and steered by Fr Cormac O’Brolchain.
It was a fantastic occasion and I am particularly grateful to our parents led by Niamh McAdam, Christina Mei and Fiona Breen who hosted the boys and also carried out multiple duties of organisation and our own coaches. Cindy Hurley, Robbie Condon (Class of 2017) and Davide Mei (Class of 2019).
As always I thank our Games Administrator Mr Evan O’Brien for his liaison.
