An average of 160 persons lose their lives in Ireland annually by drowning.  In many cases you wouldn’t need to be a spectacular swimmer to save these lives.  All levels of swimmers will receive training during ‘Water Safety Week’ for a minimal cost.  In our area three centres of training are available with accredited tutors.  Askeaton Pool runs courses from 12 – 17 July and from 9 – 14 August, starting at 8.30 am.  Copswood Pool has courses from July 26 – 31 and from August 23 – 28, all beginning at 10 am.  Both of the above courses cost €40- a small cost for a human life.  Glin Pier hosts courses from July 19 – 24 and from August 16 – 21, starting at 11.00 am and 10. 00 respectively.  Courses here are influenced by local tides and the cost is €30.  All participants of whatever level of swimming competency will receive credits for successful participation.  Such credits may eventually lead to qualification as Lifeguards at public swimming venues.  Enquiries about training to Michael O’Sullivan at 061 393204.
