The County finals of Community Games swimming were held on Friday last and Sarah Cantillon from Dysart will be representing the County at the All Ireland finals to be held in Athlone in August, having won Gold in Butterfly swimming.  Her brother, Jamie, came 4th in Breaststroke.  
Others from the parish who swam very well were Julien Travers, Diarmaid Hastings, Sinead Hastings and Emma Cantillon.
