New Year’s Day swim in the Blackwater river

A festive atmosphere prevailed at the Boeing, for the second annual New Year’s day swim. An air temperature of minus one (no one tested the water’s temperature) did not stop the twelve participants. Well done to all! The mulled wine and refreshments were very welcome after the icy dip. The supporters needed warming up as well, just the thought made them freeze!

The organisers would like to thank Supervalue for sponsoring the event and everyone who donated generously to this year’s causes – LTV2 and The Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses.
