My name is Jackie Power born in the U.K. to Fermoy mother and New Zealand father. I was a Secondary School teacher in England. I always spent my summer holidays in Ardmore where I not only learnt to swim, but captured myself a husband, Matthew. I moved to Fermoy 25 years ago and got involved with the swimming club and worked at Fermoy Leisure Centre. Both my children Mark and Sarah swam competitively with the club. I hold the IWS Pool Lifeguard Qualification. I hold a UKCC Level 3 Coaching Qualification, UKCC Level 2 Teaching Qualification, Adult and Child Qualification. I also work for Swim Ireland as a Senior Tutor for Coaching and Teaching Aquatics as well as a Child Protection Tutor. I am also on the Education and Development Committee for Swim Ireland.
