Republican fundraising frolics at the Grand Canal on Christmas day.

Fresh off the presses-picture story for the bleary eyed on Xmas day. Jesus died for our sins and the group at the canal dived in the canal at the Blackhorse in Inchicore to raise money for republican prisoners.

It was all go at the canal. Special Branch showed no sign of government cutbacks as names and addresses were taken along the canal by a generous supply of officers.

The tough year was represented by Dunnes crips and mince pies, gone was the Coke and Walkers crisps. Five brave or mad enough to dive into the canal for the sponsored swim did so, the water much milder than previous years. Cabhair raised some money and one of the swimmers having won a wood carving from political prisoners donated it back to be auctioned.

A short festive photo story follows on some fundraising frolics at the canal on Christmas day.

Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year to all
