Make a big splash this festive season

There are two festive swims organised in the New Ross district over the coming weeks.

Duncannon FC will hold their annual New Year's Day swim on Duncannon beach at 1 p.m. on January 1. This year half the money raised will go to Pieta House.

The organisers are asking everyone to come out and support the event. Padraig Doran of the Duncannon New Year's Swim committee said: 'All are welcome to join in on the day and swim or just come along and cheer on or laugh at our brave swimmers.'

For any more information please contact Padraig on 085 8000933.

The annual swim in Slade Harbour takes place on Sunday, December 30, at noon. Everyone is invited to come along to this fun festive annual fundraising Christmas swim. Held in conjunction with Hook Sub Aqua Club, members will brave the icy December waters to raise funds for both sub aqua clubs.

Light refreshments will be available afterwards at the Hook Sub Aqua clubhouse.
