Thanks and Well done to all. Looking forward to next year already!
Coláiste Cois Life from Lucan, Co. Dublin had nearly 150 swimmers taking part in the Ian Daly Swim A Mile With A Smile over two days in January, at the National Aquatic Centre. This is the largest group they have had since they started participating in the swim annually, in 2010.
All the swimmers had a great time. This is in large part to the work of the teachers, Tomas Konstantin and Angela Gibbons who put in a lot of effort in organising the swimmers into groups which helped the event run smoothly.
Thank you to all involved. If you have a large school or community group who would like to take part in the swim contact us and we will help you make it happen, no matter what part of the country you are in.
Gaelscoil Na Mara kicks off 2017 Swim A Mile fund raising with €1,000
The 2017 Ian Daly Swim A Mile event kicked off early on December 16th when 33 students from Gaelscoil Na Mara in Arklow completed the swim in the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin. Most of the students completed the swim in a relay as groups of two. There were also 9 brave students who completed the 64 length mile swim individually and were rewarded with a special ‘Ian Daly Swim A Mile’ swim cap. As you can see from the pictures the swim went off very well and everyone had a great time. The school has raised over €1000 so far for our two charities, Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Barretstown.
Well done to all the swimmers and to the teachers who promoted the event in the school, led by Áine McKenna
