Run in memory of the much-loved Tallaght coach and master swimmer Marion Lane who sadly passed away in 2017, this short course gala provides swimmers with a final opportunity to register qualification times for the National Division Two Championships.

Tallaght Swim Team were out in force for the club’s annual Marion Lane Gala in Balrothery 2019

In 2019 it was young Dublin swim club ‘Swan Leisure’ who had the honour of raising the Marion Lane Cup after winning the Girls 9-12 200m Medley Relay, Head Coach Pauric Kenny making the presentation.

Among those present at the 2019 event was Tallaght and National Centre international & now Olympic swimmer Brendan Hyland who put in a great show when competing in the 400 Individual Medley.

Brendan Hyland and some Tallaght swimmers

“It was great to see Brendan at the club and still holding his grass roots”.  “He even had the time to sign autographs, pose for pictures with younger club members and his club coaches alike.  “He is a great ambassador for the club and indeed for the world of swimming”.
