Hi!

On Christmas day next at 12 noon , sponsored swimmers will , once again , swim at least two widths each of the Grand Canal at Inchicore , Dublin , in an event which has been held since 1976!

The swim will take place beside the bridge opposite the Blackhorse Inn (Kellys) Pub , and is organised by CABHAIR , the Irish republican prisoners dependants fund organisation : music , fire , food and drink will be supplied by the organisers and all are welcome!
The 'Related Link', below, will show you that, come hail, rain or sunshine, this event seems to be unstoppable!
