The Special Olympics Eastern Region Aquatics League Final took place in Sportsco, Ringsend on March 10th 2013. The final saw the successful teams from Area 1 – Blue Dolphins compete against the Area 2/3 victors – The Jets. The points tally after all 15 races was close with Blue Dolphins coming away with a narrow but well deserved victory.  Huge congratulations to Blue Dolphins and indeed to all 9 clubs who competed in the league in 2012/2013. We hope more teams will get involved in the league in 2013/2014. We would like to offer a special thank you to Linda O’Neill who co-ordinated the league this season. Please check out the photographs from the League Finals Day below.
