Barry joined the club in 1975 and convinced Eddie to join the club in 1981. Over the years they have taught thousands of local children to swim and we feel really lucky and extremely grateful to have them with the club for so long. Their experience will be greatly missed. On the day of their retirement, April 30th, past and present members came back to mark this occasion. We would like to nominate both of them for Blarney person of the month as such dedication is hard to find these days.”
