The Gerald Walsh Memorial Swim: Congratulations and well done to all of the swimmers. The swim was pulled forward an hour to accommodate the inclement weather, however there were still showers as the race took place.

The SE wind was minimal . 41 swimmers took part with most fighting for valuable points for The Swimmer of The Year Awards . It was amazing to see everyone at the finish having put 100 percent effort in with some swimmers unable to even stand up .

Massive commitment and hugely Inspiring for the onlookers . The first person home was Cillian Tierney .

For what it’s worth, you are all winners for even taking part throughout the year. Some fantastic swims and great camaraderie by all .

Unfortunately there can only be one overall winner or Swimmer of The Year . And the winner is…all will be revealed at the prize giving on 26th September in The Meadowlands .
