Tri Heroes Gets Springtime Boost

More than 250 budding triathletes have taken part in Triathlon Ireland's Tri Heroes programme over the last six weeks.

Aided by the pleasant spring weather, pupils in Cork and Galway took their first steps in to triathlon, learning to swim, cycle and then run in a safe, fun and encouraging environment.
