Hi !

On Christmas Day next (Tuesday 25th December 2012) at 12 noon , the CABHAIR organisation will , for the 36th successive year, hold a sponsored swim at the 3rd Lock of the Grand Canal , at Inchicore , Dublin (opposite Kelly's 'Blackhorse Inn' pub) .
All money raised at this event goes directly to the dependants of Irish Republican prisoners , as expenses are not claimed or taken by anyone involved.
A turf fire , Irish Rebel music , lemonade and mince pies for the kids and 'soup' for the adults will be provided , as usual , and Santa will more than likely pay the event a visit !

If you are in the area between 12 noon and 1pm, hungry , bored or hungover (or looking to acquire a hangover !) then give us a shout. And bring your togs.... !
A few words (and some pics) re the 2011 Swim can be viewed at the 'Related Link' below.

Thanks!
Sharon.

Hi !

The CABHAIR Swim in Armagh was held on Saturday last, 22nd December 2012 - the swimmers had either spotted a break in the drizzle and took advantage of it or decided to do it early and get to Dublin for the 25th to see how it's down properly (!) but , whatever the reason, fair play to those who organised it , took part in it and to those who observed proceedings.

A brief report and a few pics can be had at the 'Related Link' , below.

Thanks,
Sharon.

Hi !

The 36th consecutive annual CABHAIR Christmas Day Swim in the Grand Canal at Inchicore , Dublin , was held yesterday , as planned , and eight swimmers 'earned their keep' at it , as they had been sponsored to do.
The only issue of concern was when the political police attempted to keep Santa Clause (!) from gaining entry to the Swim site but he gingerly side-stepped them and was given a hot whiskey and a mince pie at the fireside.
Apart from the canal being like a wind-tunnel , those of us not in swim gear thought it was a pleasant enough day but seven men and one woman continually assured us that that was not the case !

A few pics and a brief report on the event can be had at the 'Related Link' , below.

Thanks ,
Sharon.

Hi !

As well as Christmas Day / New Years Day Swims in Dublin , Wexford and Armagh , CABHAIR also had its representatives 'earn their keep' at Banna Strand in Kerry and at Coney Island in New York.

The Fenian Flag was actually flying at Coney Island for the Irish Republican swimmers and was , spirituality , hoisted on high for the Strand lads, too ! More on the Kerry Swim here -

Thanks,
Sharon.
