"After long discussions today with the local gardai and Dunmore East Coastguard and as a mark of respect to the families of the 3 Bolger Brothers from Passage East Co. Waterford who were tragically drowned yesterday off Waterford coast, our Triathlon which is due to take place this Saturday has been postponed until further notice. The deceased lived and worked locally to Dunmore East and the tragedy has affected the local community profoundly. The burials are taking place on Saturday afternoon. We will be in contact with all competitors over the next few days following our discussions with Triathlon Ireland to reschedule the event.
Our deepest sympathies to the families of the deceased."
