History was made at the National Aquatic Centre on 25 September 2022 when the first ever game of Water Polo to be played at a 50 metre pool in Ireland occured. St, Vincent's defeated rivals Sandycove 11-6 in the first match although it was not without nerves for St. Vincent's at the end as they let a six goal lead elapse in the third quarter to let Sandycove pull within one goal.
