Swimming: Murphy not ruling out UL return


Olympic swimmer Gráinne Murphy has not ruled out a return to the High Performance Centre at the University of Limerick.

The 19-year-old is training in New Ross and attending Carlow IT. She relocated to Wexford in October after her coach Ronald Claes didn't have his contract renewed leaving Murphy devastated. Her manager Eoin Conroy revealed that although she is happy with her current set-up, moving back to Limerick is still a possibility.

"Gráinne is really enjoying being a student and training hard in New Ross but that could change. We won't rule anything out," said Conroy.

Last week, Lars Humer was appointed as the new head coach at the HP centre in Limerick. The New Zealander is due to take up his new post tomorrow.

Humer has been a high-performance coach with British Swimming for the past 13 years where he coached both Paralympic and Olympic swimmers. He also competed as a swimmer before moving into coaching.
