Our History

Wicklow Swimming Club (WSC) has been in continuous existence since 1941, though there are historical records showing a Swimming Club in existence in the town as far back as 1859.

There are a number of photographs from down through the years in our photographic archives, of which the following are a few.



We have always been generously supported by families and businesses in the town, many of whom sponsor and support our races to this day.  Each race has its own history and you should check out the ‘Roll of Honour’ for each of the swims to see as full a list of past winners.
