Shift work

It’s so busy at the beach, we’re working in shifts.  First group in on Saturday was for Gary Frost’s birthday sunrise swim, with full outdoor catering afterwards.

Gary Frost’s birthday group – too many to name, but that’s Gary with the balloon on the far left and Lemmy the Dog is there too.

Second shift was just in time for the ferry to pass. Welcome back to Maeve and welcome to David Dineen, who moved to Crosshaven recently.

David Dineen, Ciaran Byrne, Rob “it’s much easier to get parking in Sandycove” Bohane, Bernard Lynch, Damian O’Neill, Maeve Mulcahy, Eddie Irwin and Neddy “hurry up, it’s cold” Irwin.

The third shift got creative and took one car to Fountainstown, then swam back to Myrtleville.

Ross O’Connor, Keith Hyde, Aidan Mangan & Kieran Callinan.

A standard time of 8.15am on Saturdays will run throughout the Winter.  It’s over 15c in the water, so it’s not time to even think about cold water yet.

If you’re looking to swim with others and don’t have a group, that’s the time to aim for. Everyone welcome.
