FOLLOWING on from their success at the Ulster Secondary Schools Swimming Championships Dromore High School boys Alex and Matthew Walker represented school recently at the Irish Senior Schools Championships in Dublin.

Year 12 pupil Matthew, who had claimed a second in the Ulster rankings for the 100m free went to the Irish on the weekend of his school formal and gave a steady performance, just missing out on the final and finishing overall seventh.

The Walker brothers are always up for representing their school and proud to wear the blue colours of Dromore, well done boys.
