Recently cheques for €25,000 were presented to Barretstown camp and Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin by Brian & Laura Daly. The funds raised were the result of their annual  ‘Ian Daly Swim A Mile With A Smile’.  2019 was the 16th year of the swim and in that time the event has raised over €607,000 which has been divided equally between Barretstown and Crumlin.
