Gougane Barra Swim, 18th August, 2012

Thanks to Carol Cashell for these ‘on the water’ photos!

On Saturday, August 18th, over 50 swimmers travelled to Gougane Barra for Tadhg Harrington’s annual swim. It is always a great swim, ideal for those who are new to open water swimming because it is a nice, safe swim with good boat cover and shore monitoring (and you dont have to race!). This year the swimmers were presented with a 2.5km and a 4.5km option for the swim.

I’m sure that all will agree that it was a fantastic swim, made more interesting by the boat crew, which included a local musician, Éibhlís Johnny, who played the tin whistle as we swam around – it was certainly a new experience for me to hear music as I’m swimming around a lake (normally it’s just in my head!). Thanks as always to Tadhg for organising a great swim and to all of the volunteers that helped out with the organisation and running of the day. The results for the swim are below.
