Irish divers made a strong showing at the 2010 Irish Open National Championships last weekend.

Natasha McManus of the Dublin Diving Club took first place in the Girls C group 1 metre and 3 metre categories, just missing out on the platform dive by 15 points.

The Girls B+ 3 metre title went to Vivienne Hew, also of the Dublin Diving Club, Her sister Francesca took second place in the 1 metre category, setting a new personal best record.

In the Boys B+ group, the Shamrock Diving Club's Jack Ffrench won the 3 metre and platform categories - the latter helped by an unexpected dive from 7.5 metres that wowed the judges.

Fellow Shamrock diver Sean McCormack claimed the Boys B+ 1 metre title, while teammate Joshua Hernandez came third in the same category in the C group.

This was the biggest year yet for the contest at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin, with 250 entries from diving clubs in Ireland, the UK and as far away as Italy.
