Hi !

On Christmas Day next (Wednesday 25th December 2019) at 12 noon , the CABHAIR organisation will , for the 43rd 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 yer togs.... !
A report and pics from the 2018 Swim can be viewed at the 'Related Link' below.

Thanks!
Sharon.

Hi again!

So far (but it's early yet!) , four swimmers have been sponsored for this event, and 400 leaflet packs, each containing at least three republican-themed leaflets, have been distributed in the Swim area. The usual 'goodies' have been donated by shops and pubs in Inchicore, Ballyfermot, Walkinstown etc, and the 'lemonade' from Donegal has been organised!

The Cabhair Christmas Crew are way ahead of themselves and are expecting another successful event!

Thanks,
Sharon.

Four-hundred leaflet packs - between 1,200 and 1,500 leaflets - have been distributed in connection with this Cabhair Swim.
