News and Events – May 2012


Our club runs a sea swim August bank holiday Monday. These are some images from the 2011 event.

Six members of our club took part in the World Winter Swimming Championships in Riga, in January 2012.

Anne McAdam, Isabel Collins, Andre Ray, Barry Dunne, Bernard O Sullivan, Sean Dervan and Rachel Doyle all participated in the 25m event in water temperatures of 0.5 degrees and Rachel Doyle was strong enough to complete and win the World Gold in the 450m event. Anne won the silver in her event. Well done to all who took the plunge!

Rachel hopes to swim the channel in August 2012 and is training hard to that end.

Many of us took to the notorious waters of San Fransisco Bay in the Escape From Alcatraz, 2005…Dave Keenen, Sean Dervan, Willie Tracy, jumped into the icy waters, along with approx 300 others and swam to shore in about 40 mins.
