Hi !

On Christmas Day next (Thursday 25th December 2014) at 12 noon , the CABHAIR organisation will , for the 38th 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 'mixed bag' of Swim pics from previous such events can be viewed at the 'Related Link' below.

Thanks!
Sharon.

Hi!

The 'deciding factor' - the weather! - was kind to us on Christmas Day last on the banks of the Grand Canal in Inchicore, Dublin, for the annual Cabhair outing, as it was 'only' frosty, icy and cold. Near perfect conditions (!) for a fund-raising swim, which five lads did, closely monitored by various people, including a mysterious 'MIB' , two 'SB' and a 'damaged' SC !

A few words and pics re this event - the 38th such successive one - can be viewed at the 'Related Link' , below.

Thanks,
Sharon.

Hi!

Cabhair members/supporters will also be holding sponsored swims in Wexford (Rosslare Strand, Christmas Day, 12 noon) and Armagh (Craigavon Lakes, date and time to be confirmed). And I'm told all the swimmers are hoping for a white Christmas with heavy frost to ensure they earn their keep.....

Thanks,
Sharon.

Hi!

CABHAIR have confirmed three sponsored swimmers , so far , with another two 'probables' and one 'possible' : also confirmed is the arrival of 'Santa' , mince pies , swans in 'attack mode' , evil elves 'guarding' the gateway and a contingent of swimmers and on-lookers from the Seán Healy Slua of Na Fianna Éireann in Dublin - more here re same :

It's looking like this year's Swim will be as successful as the thirty-seven that have gone before it , and all in aid of the thirty-two.....

Thanks,
Sharon.

The 38th will be held on the 25th for the 32!
