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.
