Caitlin helps smash Channel record


WHO would ever have thought that the biggest challenge facing someone swimming the English Channel was avoiding being seasick?

That was one of the problems faced by Rylane girl Caitlin Desmond, who last weekend wrote herself into the record books as part of the team that smashed the Irish record for the Channel relay swim.

"The Channel is the Holy Grail for open water swimmers. This is the big one and I'm delighted that I have been able to tick it off my bucket list," she said.
