It's a big week!

December 13, 2021

The Short Course (25m pool) swimming season is going out with a bang as we host the Irish National Short Course Swimming Championships and support our 11 athletes at the FINA World Short Course Swimming Championships in Abu Dhabi.

The action at both competitions begins on Thursday, December 16, and you can watch every second live online via livestreams.

You'll also get regular updates via our social media pages, with live updates via Twitter at @swimireland.

Here's all the key details to help you keep in the loop!

Full Competition Information

The Sport Ireland National Aquatic Centre will welcome 389 swimmers to Ireland's first National Swimming Championships since December 2019.

This will be the first time National medals are awarded in Irish swimming since this competition two years ago, so it's only fitting that this is where we are able to resume.

Every second of every session will be live-streamed via our YouTube Channel, thanks to the team at HBV Studios.

There will be live commentary throughout led by RTE's John Kenny with Andrew Blair White for company and special guests popping in along the way.

Spectators are unfortunately not permitted, but we hope you'll tune in and support your athletes virtually instead, with the hope being that this may be the last time you can't be there in person!
