Tallaght Swim Team has begun installing new starting blocks. The new blocks have adjustable footblocks and stirrups for backstroke starts, although the stirrups will not be available for the Tallaght Gala. Paraic Kenny, head coach of Tallaght Swim Team said "The new blocks should enable swimmers to get a faster start."

The new blocks manufactured by Malmsten AB in Sweden are designed to give excellent grip through its  non-slip surface and stable construction. The removeable track start has six different positions to suit all styles and is easily removable.
