It is the time of year again for the Coogan Cup. This is a cup in honour of Maura Coogan who gave generously of her time to teach the children of the village to swim. She is admired by all her past pupils who turned up in their droves to Carlingford Sailing Club in 2011 and 2012 to swim for “Mrs. Coogan”!
The winner of the cup last year was a swimmer from Co. Monaghan, Ciaran Hennessy. Why not get your swimming togs or wetsuit out and swim either the 750m or 1500m course at Carlingford Sailing Club on Saturday August 10th at 3pm. Registration opens at 2:00pm and entry fee is €20 which includes a post swim dinner at Carlingford Sailing Club.
The event promises to be great fun, offering a nice evening to chat and catch up at the dinner that is planned for the hungry swimmers and supporters afterwards. Everyone is invited to either Swim or Support!
The event is sponsored by Carlingford Sailing Club, Carlingford Adventure Centre, Carlingford and Cooley Tourist Association, Louth Co. Council and Carlingford Adventure Club.
