Well done to all 87 swimmers this evening who took part in Fly Shannon Thomond Swim. The conditions were tough with a strong tide & plenty of rain water coming downriver but the sun came out and warmed our backs.
We would not be able to run the swim without the support of the Marine Search & Rescue who are also our main charity. Thanks also to Limerick Kayak Club, St Michaels Rowing Club; Shannon Rowing Club & Limerick Civil Defence for their support. Finally a big thank you to our sponsors Shannon Group.

Congratulations to our prizewinners this year….
