River Temperatures Rising!

Yesterday evening, Dave Mulcahy and Owen O’Keefe swam in the river for the first time in a month. The water temperature was about 6ºC when they were in on St. Patrick’s Day and the weren’t expecting any improvement on that temperature yesterday. They were pleasantly surprised, however, when there was a temperature rise of 2ºC or so. Sure, it helped that it was a beautiful sunny afternoon, but still, that 2ºC was a great improvement on the cold that was to be felt just a month ago.

As well as the rise in temperature, great progress is being made on the new slipway next to the Rowing Club. A lot of silt has settled on the slipway but that’s easily gotten rid of. We hope that this new slipway will be finished in time for this year’s event and, if it is, it’ll make it a lot easier and safer for people to get in and out of the river, especially during events.

Don’t forget that entries are open for the Martin Duggan Memorial Swim 2013 and that all you have to do to find out all information about entries is to go to our Entry page and see for yourself…
