The traditional Christmas Day swim drew a very large crowd to the pier in Glin this morning for a 9:30am ‘jump-off’. Over 40 brave souls jumped, dived, plunged and somersaulted into the water in a brave display of hardiness.
First into the water was Sean Adams age 11 and the youngest swimmer was Dora FitzGerald-West age 8.
Well wishers cheered them on and of course all the onlookers are going to swim ‘next year’!
