Tragumna Christmas Day Swim 2012

Christmas Day in West Cork brings out the brave, the mad and the bold, to take part in the annual swims on various beaches across the region. This years stunningly sunny weather brought the partakers and spectators to the little strand at Tragumna in their droves, and all in aid of charity. It was overheard to be the best turn-out in years.


This particular bold, mad, brave soul is seemingly a regular, having produced a memorable performance a few years ago when his 'golden balls' failed to stay in their allocated position. Upon returning from the chilly dip, they were far from being invisible (as might normally be expected) instead they were rather low-slung and droopy! (Not to mention some additional droopy items)

However, hats off to him and everyone else who braved the chilly water, this year (and every year) to provide a wonderful diversion from the turkey-cooking.

I will now let the pictures tell the story for themselves.
