We are all reeling from the news of two fatalities in Youghal on Sunday, and await the outcome of investigations. We extend our sympathies to the families & friends of the deceased and the emergency services who attended.
Triathlon Ireland have put in place a free & confidential counselling service for anyone affected by the events – please see Triathlon Ireland Members. – Triathlon Ireland
Our athletes & supporters were unaware of the emergency, and only found out what happened on completing the event.
