Hi !

On Christmas Day next (Friday 25th December 2015) at 12 noon , the CABHAIR organisation will , for the 39th 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 etc 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 pics from last year's swim can be accessed at the 'Related Link' , below.

Thanks!
Sharon.
