Hall of Fame that recognizes leading marathon swimmers and contributors in Ireland

noun - The Hall of Fame – Marathon Swimming Ireland (Ireland Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame) is an Hall of Fame that recognizes and honors leading marathon swimmers and contributors to the sport in Ireland. Founded in 2017, it serves as a historic record and provides heroes and role models for future generations in Ireland.

Co-Founders[edit]

Eligibility[edit]

Eligibility into the Hall of Fame – Marathon Swimming Ireland requires that all swimmers and contributors must either be Irish citizens, regardless of domicile, or have lived in Ireland for the years of meritorious involvement in the sport. All current and future Honorees of the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame who meet this requirement will automatically be included in the Hall of Fame – Marathon Swimming Ireland. As a result Ted Keenan is also included.

Considerations[edit]

  • Swimmers: their record of solo swims of 10 km of more in natural open water is considered. Relay swims will not be considered.
  • Contributors: can include administrators, coaches, crew, media, organizations, pilots, sponsors, volunteers, etc. The key consideration is making a real contribution and difference to the sport.

Nominations[edit]

  • Nominations are typically in the form of a single sheet outlining their accomplishments and contributions with contact details. Individuals can be nominated for several categories.
  • Nominations can be sent via email to either Deirdre Ward (mailto: deirdre.ward@gmail.com] or Eilís Burns (mailto:swim.eilis@gmail.com. Fitzgerald and Burns will review the nomination for factual content as eligibility is dependent upon swims and contributions which are recognized by the community and are not actively contested.

Voting[edit]

All living honorees will be given a vote. All accepted nominations will be placed on the next ballot and remain active for up to five years as long as there is reasonable support by the voters each year. The Hall of Fame – Marathon Swimming Ireland may opt to add to the nomination where additional marathons or contributions take place.
