Christmas Day Swim in the River Shannon, brrrrr it’s cold

Every Christmas Day Lough Ree Sub Aqua Club organise a charity swim. For the past few years I joined in after all it’s a bit of a laugh. Lough Ree Sub Aqua Club do great work on the lake and further a field also. As well as providing back up to the local RNLI Lifeboat (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) they also provide support and take part in searches all over the island of Ireland.

The swim is a nice tradition and a good way to start off your Christmas Day. It certainly would clear away any cobwebs, if you have a few from the night before!

This is just a little extra video that I have thrown in for the fun of it. Hope you all had a great Christmas, thanks for watching and hope to see you in the new year.
