St Stephen’s Day Club Swim
On a cold, wet 2012 St Stephen’s Day a hardy bunch of Dublin Swimming Club swimmers took part in the annual Christmas club swim / race at Sandycove in south Co Dublin. The men’s race was won by Matt Kenny, followed closely by Paul Beagon, Keith Butler and John Pickering.
In the ladies race there was a dead heat between Eithne Kenny and Alison Bourke, followed closely by Maeve Dunne, Ann Marie Bourke and Heather Bourke. Well done to all, especially to Paul, Keith and Heather for whom it was their first ever winter swim. James Joyce himself would have been proud of their efforts.
