Annual Swim

Christmas Day wouldn’t be quite the same for us Dungarvan folk without the now firmly established annual Lions Club Swim at Clonea which goes ahead yet again at 12 noon next Saturday. Year on year, and whatever the elements, huge crowds have turned out for this one, many of them braving it into the icy sea waters all in the cause of local charities. Every participant next Saturday will have been sponsored, and of course the more money the swim raises, the more generous the Lions Club can be in its distribution to the very deserving charities who will be this year’s beneficiaries. All of them local let it be said. As in past years too there will be hot soup and other foods for the swimmers when they finish their swim, and indeed the spectators too will be looked after. Hopefully the day is rain free and we are looking forward to another great Christmas Day swim. See you there!
