Nuala Moore.

A GUINNESS World Record holder is hosting a presentation on her swim to the most dangerous waters in the world at The Meadowlands Hotel on Monday, February 10 at 7.30pm.

Nuala will explain with what it takes to prepare your mind to swim at extreme temperatures, what it takes to lower her body into huge seas in remote locations around the world.

Nuala will focus on her recent World Record Swim south of Cape Horn in the Drake Passage.  These evenings are both fundraisers for Nuala’s next adventure to Mount Everest Base Camp where she will take on a swim at 5000m.

Nuala will travel in April this year where she hopes to be the first woman in the world to swim at this height and also the 2nd swimmer to complete a distance on Mount Everest. Lake Imja has great significance which she will explain on the night.

She will be joined by explorer Rory Golden who twice descended to the Titanic in 2000 and 2005 and he will explain the Tralee connection to the ship.

Nuala will take the audience into the most dangerous waters in the world-from the Bering Strait Relay to Cape Horn, the southerly tip of the Chilean territory.

Nuala Moore, from Dingle, works full time and has been swimming at extreme temperatures and remote locations for over a decade. Balancing life and work.

Her swim journey started back in 2006 when she was part of the only team of 6 swimmers to swim around the Island of Ireland. 56 days in just swim togs.  She was the first Irish swimmer, and the 5th woman in the world to complete 1000m @ 0 deg Ice in 2013.

As part of a team she swam across the Bering Strait from Russia to the USA-one of the most dangerous swims in Open Water history.

Nuala has represented Ireland and competed in 0 deg Ice Swimming World Championships – 3 times in Russia and 1 in Finland. Winning the Russian Ice Swimming 1km (1st female finisher) Championships in Krasnoyarsk in 2016.

Nuala’s most recent swim was awarded a Guinness World Record -she completed the first mile between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, South of Cape Horn, in the Drake Passage.

She has been named as one of the top 50 of the World’s Most Adventurous women in Open water 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Rory Golden was a member of an expedition that recovered 800 artefacts from The Titanic nearly 4,000 metres deep underwater.

His dive was in a Russian submersible, and he left a memorial plaque on the wreck on behalf of the people of Ireland. He also spotted the main ship’s wheel which was recovered on the dive.

He returned in August 2005, leaving two more memorial plaques from Belfast on the ship. Rory will bring us through the journey and explain the Tralee and Kerry connection with the Titanic.

Tickets for the evening are €10 on the door. Tickets will also be available at the reception of the Meadowlands in the coming week.
