Hundreds of people had a refreshing start to 2018 during the annual New Year’s Day swim at Marble Hill beach today.
Young and old raced into the sea for a quick dip, braving the cold temperatures in support of a local cause.
Proceeds from today’s event will go towards the Playpark at the Workhouse in Dunfanaghy which is a very enjoyable amenity for all the children in the area. The swim was organised by the Doe Amateur Swimming Club.
From these photos by Moses Alcorn, it’s clear that the event was an enjoyable afternoon. The sky may have been blue, but you can only imagine how cold it was out there!
