Rosses Point swim donating to worthy cause
Committee members of the Channel Cup Swim were delighted to hand over a cheque for €2 ,500 to the RNLI at the Sligo Bay Lifeboat Station in Rosses Point recently. The Channel Cup Swim took place in Rosses Point in September 2021. One hundred swimmers took to the water in the sold-out event. The annual Channel Cup Swim is a fundraiser for the RNLI and Sligo Bay Lifeboat station located in Rosses Point. On the day of the swim, the swimmers entered the water at Tommy’s Island close to the start of the promenade in Rosses Point. Swimmers swam just over 1km and exited at the Harry Ewing pier beside the RNLI station. Thank you to everyone who supported the swim. We are so lucky to have the RNLI volunteers at the Sligo Bay Lifeboat Station who provide the valuable service all year round.
