GORT swimmer Ciara Doran will represent Ireland in the Canadian Age Group Championships later this year.
This will be the 14-year-olds first time swimming for Ireland in the competition in Winnipeg from July 23 to 27. To make the Irish team Ciara had to achieve certain qualifying times, which she did at the National Senior Championships last month.
“She is over the moon. This is a dream coming true for Ciara. This really makes the early mornings worth it for her,” said her dad Patrick Doran. “She wants to get to the Olympics and this is a huge step forward for her.”
