Christmas Swim 50th Anniversary;

The 50 for 50 campaign to get 50 swimmers to take part in the 50th anniversary of the staging of the event is well on target. The swim in aid of the Senior Citizens Christmas Party will take place in Ballycroneen Beach at 12.30 sharp on Christmas Day. Hot drinks will be served after the swim and we would ask as many people to come along to support these hardy (foolish) souls.
