TWO ladies from Kerry have just embarked on a 24 hour swim in 17 counties in aid of  the Kerry Cancer Support Group.

Rachel McCann from Leith, just outside Tralee, and Kathy O’Mahony Roberts from Ballyfinnane, aim to swim in each coastal county around Ireland in 24 hours this Saturday in aid of  the Kerry Cancer Support Group to fund  a wheelchair accessible bus which takes people to cancer  related appointments.

“Unfortunately we both had family members whom availed of  treatment in Cork and Dublin and now we  want to help make this wheelchair accessible bus a reality,” said Rachel.

“We are making our  start at 5am Saturday morning and our first  swim will take place in Limerick at Kilteery Pier.  We would love  the support of anyone would  be  around to do our final swim with us,” said the ladies. For more, see their fundraising page here.
