Swimmers are reminded that the coach leaves Cascades at 3.30pm for Ballymena. As usual we will be expected to supply timekeepers for the event while coaches will sort out the squad.

We have just been informed that the qualification event for the above gala will now take place on Friday 16th March in Lurgan.
