Triathlon Ireland and Swim Ireland Announce a Unique Partnership

In a unique partnership, two of Ireland’s leading organisations are co-operating closely to make their sports more accessible to all. Triathlon Ireland and Swim Ireland are launching a new dual-membership that will allow members of each organisation access a wider range of activities in each other’s sports.

The initiative represents a new level of cooperation between the two bodies and reflects the value of a joint approach to participation. Triathlon Ireland and Swim Ireland have been working closely on this joint initiative for some time and believe it will will reduce entry current barriers to both sports while also offering increased benefits to members.

Discounted Membership

The discounted membership option will appeal to swimmers who want to take part in multisport events such as triathlon, aquathlon and duathlon; and triathletes who want to compete in Swim Ireland sanctioned open water events and masters competitions.

Triathlon Ireland CEO, Chris Kitchen commented. “Swimming and triathlon are so closely linked that it makes sense for Triathlon Ireland and Swim Ireland to work collectively to achieve our common goals. We hope this combined membership initiative will go some small way towards this.”

Sarah Keane, CEO Swim Ireland added "We're delighted that more and more people are discovering the joy of open water swimming whether it's through triathlon or open-water swimming events. We want as many people in the water enjoying these great races as possible and we're so pleased to be able to work with Triathlon Ireland on this initiative."
