So, last year (2020), myself (Ceall) and a good friend (Niall) set off on an odyssey. We wanted to see how far we could get swimming from point to point down the coast, starting from Blackrock Baths in Dublin.
We had an amazing summer doing some fantastic swims, seeing some spectacular coastlines along the way. We got as far as Cahore in Wexford by September and Niall documented it in a blog along the way. We used the blog to raise money for two charities. One was Clean Coasts and the other was Temple Street Children’s Hospital. I have relocated Niall’s 2020 blog to this site for a more permanent record.
This year, I plan to continue on from Cahore. I have been planning all winter and I’m looking forward to the lifting of lockdown and getting going again. I live within lockdown reach of Bull Wall in Dublin so luckily training has started. This year I am collecting funds for a friend who is seeking treatment for cancer in a specialised European medical centre. She is quite a private person so she doesn’t want to publicize her name. As a result, I have set up the following GoFundMe page for her treatment https://gofund.me/3bc9e9cb
I implore you to read this blog and enjoy the adventure as much as we did and will continue to do.
