Amazing news folks!! Back in 2021 we ran the Celtic Masters gala in conjunction with AerLingus masters which earned a profit. We're super happy to be in this position and this profit has been donated to LauraLynn Children's Hospice. Thanks everyone who participated and helped out with the running of the event. ...

Congratulations to two NAC Masters sea swimming stalwarts Jackie O'Connor and Patrick Corkery who were both succesful in winning the inaugural Dublin Cold Water 1km gala held at the iconic Clontarf Baths today.
With a field of 24 ice swimmers from all over the country this was the culmination of a winter spent enduring ever colder temperatures in seas, lakes and rivers around Ireland. For others, the 1km race is part of their qualification for an upcoming Ice Mile attempt. With a water temperature of just 5.8C, it was marginally over the 'Ice Swim' territory of 5.0C, but this didn't deter the seasoned swimmers from the task at hand.
Jackie, who swims almost daily in the sea, was fastest lady and 2nd overall with a great time of 16.27. Patrick, who has 2 Ice Miles already under his belt, and recently qualified as a Swim Ireland Open Water Coach was fastest overall with a time of 16.13.
Finally, well done to everyone who took part in the event and everyone who volunteered their time and effort to support the swimmers. ... See MoreSee Less
