Whether it’s football, snooker, boxing, motor-bike sports, or even the glamour of Formula One racing, Northern Ireland has contributed more than its share of sporting champions. Now, judging by the pool of talent at Bangor Barracudas, water polo could be next to join the superstar line-up.

Established in 2012, the club, situated at Bangor’s Aurora Aquatic and Leisure Centre, offers young people the opportunity to play competitively throughout Ireland. But, as founding member, Sarah Branigan, explains, there’s more to being a Bangor Barracuda than scoring goals.
