As a finish to the Ice Mile shenanigans, we had a get together last Saturday in Dublin, organised by Fergal Somerville, to receive our certificates of membership to the Ice Swimming Association. A good night was had by all. As can be seen from the picture, we all got the trademark red jacket also
From left to right, Fergal Somerville, myself, Carmel Collins, John Daly, Patrick Corkery.
I also met and had a long chat with a true gentleman of long distance swimming, Martin Cullen
And finally, not to let a trip to Dublin go to waste, the following morning (not too early) we went out to Portmarnock for a bit of a dip, not too long, just enough to wash away the cobwebs.
Thanks again to Fergal for doing all the organising here too. It’s great to just turn up and have everything done for you.
Now that the last cold snap seems to have finally left us, maybe now the sea will start to warm up a bit and we can get some “serious” swimming done now !
