Congratulations on a great 21km swim yesterday to Carol Cashell, Eddie Irwin, Bernard Lynch and Liam Maher. Excellent organisation and fantastic weather made it a day to remember. Siobhan Russell, as ever, was on hand to record the day. Here’s a few of the great pictures.
Getting ready – Bernard explains the vital feeds to the highly experienced crew of Billy Kelleher and Tom McCarthy. Every swimmer has a different preference and Billy and Tom always get it right.

Flat calm for a synchronised swim. Eddie and Liam.

Heading for the lighthouse. Apparently it was visible to the swimmers for hours and felt like it would never be reached!
Into Ballycotton for Bernard.
Happy swimmers in the RNLI Station in Ballycotton.

Well done to all of the crew and swimmers.
