2020 Irish Winter Meet

2020 Irish Winter Meet

The 2020 Irish Winter Meet took place at the National Aquatic Centre, Dublin from Thursday, 17th to Sunday, 20th December.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, entries were limited to Swim Ireland members representing a Swim Ireland club, who were able to be categorised as elite.

It was also run in an unusual format, with 25m heats in the morning, followed by 50m finals in the afternoon - and there were no spectators.

Despite these changes, the 2020 Irish Winter Meet saw Irish swimmers set nine new national records.
