CONNACHT AGE-GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS The Connacht Age-Group Championships (sponsored by Coca-Cola) took place at Castlerea on Sunday last, July 12th. There were reasonably good en tries in the under 10, and under 14 groups, but the entry in the girls under 16 group was very disappointing; there being no more than five swimmers in all for the five races. Highlight of the day was the girls under 14, 100 metres crawl,' where Agnes Desmond and Susan Small battled with each other for the whole distance and Susan was finally beaten by a mere touch. Both are promising young swim-' mers, whom we hope will do weir at the National Finals in the Grove Baths, Belfast, at the end of the month. Susan was not the only one in her family to do well on Sunday. In fact, she and her two younger sisters--Muriel and Valerie--brought home six medals between them. All are members of the Galway Swimming Club, as also are Paula, Moya and Nessa Kennedy, three sisters who brought home another six medals between them.
Do The Rest
have also confirmed their victories of earlier this season, by winning the Cadet Eights and Colt Eights events in fine style. An unfortu nate mishap on the course robbed Galway Rowing Club of a win in their event for Junior Fours, but U.C.G.'s Maiden Sculler did well to get to the final in his class, although the adverse conditions put paid to hopes of another win. St. Joseph's outstanding Eight now travel to Molsley this week end to represent Ireland in the Quadrangular International for the second year running. This extraordinary success marks the highlight of Galway's greatest season for decades: St. Joseph's having won the two Schools Championships; U.C.G. with the Wylie Cup and Maiden Eights Championship; and both Galway Rowing Club and St. Ignatius R.C. with multiple victories to their credit. Next week-end also sees Gal way Rowing Club featuring in the Junior Fours Championship at Askeaton, with high hopes after their inspiring victories at Cork, Limerick and Galway. Whatever the outcome of the week-end's events, it is certain more honours will be brought back to the Corribside.
Mr. Graham sat for written and practical examinations in driving tuition and he received the highest diplomas in driving
Atrocious weather conditions at Blessington over the week-end, spoiled the Dublin Metropolitan 2 day Regatta for the 160 crews who attended, and overall, resul ted in rather a dissappointing event. Gradually worsening con ditions on Saturday saw 9 crews sinking and sculls races post poned. Sunday proved no kinder, and although most of the races were held back for over an hour, officials were obliged to shorten the course and give flying starts. Even yet, more crews were swam ped when the wind over the course continued unabated. Sur prise of the week-end was the fine victory of Neptune B.C. over U.C.D. in the Senior Eights Championship on Saturday--con firmed in positive terms again on Sunday. Club of the day was undoubt edly St. Joseph's, who as well as taking their expected victories in the schools events, also put in extraordinary performances at senior level, when they came third in the Blue Riband for Senior Fours, and were placed a most creditable second in the Second Senior Eights.
