Myrtleville Christmas Swim 2012 – view from the waterline

Huge crowds on the beach on Christmas morning, swimming for various charities or just for their own sanity.  More cars and people than on the busiest Summer’s day.  Obviously the health of open water swimming in Ireland is going from strength to strength.  Or maybe I’m reading too much into that….  Some swimmers lasted almost a minute in the water…..Thanks to Brian Barry for the pictures.
