Galway Girls – ready to go!

Brenda Sisk and Marie Watson have left no stone unturned in their preparations for the Galway Bay swim next Saturday.  While many of us have seen their efforts in the pool and sea right through last Winter, there’s more than just training needed to make a swim – and swimmer – successful.  Thankfully, the Galway Girls seem to have it all in hand.

They’ve got the promotional posters and star paparazzi to record the events.

They’ve got the nails painted aerodynamically and also to look good for the aforementioned paparazzi person.

Marie Watson - attention to detail is admirable.

They’ve had a kiss for good luck from the main man, Mr. Redmond (Brenda has to share it – Marie grabbed it).

Finally, they’ve recognised the risk that their spirits may flag in mid-swim, so they’ve employed the services of Ann “The Dominator Motivator” Smyth as crew.

I'd keep swimming if I was ye, girls. Ann Smyth as boat crew...

Barbara Anne Richardson and Brendan O’Brien are going for the swim on Saturday too – but I didn’t have incriminating photos of them, so they’ll have to make do with “Good Luck!!”.  Good luck to all four, in fact 🙂
