Congratulations & Good Luck

Owen O’Keeffe warmed up (or rather, cooled down) for his Summer of long swims with a five hour swim in Myrtleville in June and has been clocking up some fantastic results since then.  Last week, he completed a 61km swim down the Blackwater from Fermoy to Youghal.  It’s hard to even imagine it!   Carol Cashell was among the crowd who went to cheer him home and sent some pictures.  His swim report is here.

Also, good luck this week to regular Myrtleville Swimmer, James Slowey, who is racing in the Haute Route Alps – a seven day road race billed as “The highest and toughest cyclosportive in the world”.  He made sure he could handle the cold sections on the mountain tops by swimming all Winter….
