International - Event Notice
Friday December 28 2018

Ten swimmers, two venues.

Cabhair sponsored swims, December 2018.

Dublin and Wexford - jobs done!

Hi!

Ten brave swimmers challenged themselves and the elements over the Christmas period to raise funds for the Cabhair organisation : six lads swam at the 3rd Lock of the Grand Canal in Dublin on Christmas Day and four of their comrades fought the tide in Rosslare Strand in Wexford on St Stephen's Day.
A few words and pics regarding the Wexford event can be had at this (Facebook) link -

- and a brief report and some pics re the Dublin event can be had at the 'Related Link' , below.

Fair play to the ten swimmers and to those that sponsored them, and those that turned-out to view the proceedings - good on ye all!

Thanks for reading,
Sharon.
