For the second year running the Lough Ree Orca swimming group held their Annual New Year's Day swim including families and friends of the group.
The Orcas, now heading into their fourth year are a group of like-minded swimmers most of whom swim all year round in the Shannon and elsewhere and are a familiar sight in
Ballyleague / Lanesboro and surrounding areas where safe swimming can be enjoyed.
Combined with their Christmas Day swim last week and the January first swim this year, swimmers and supporters generously donated to Gerry Trimble and Noel Moran of the Ballyleague Christmas Lights Committee which was selected as the chosen cause this year.
Despite the current difficulties and adhering to all safety guidelines, a wonderful swimming experience was enjoyed by all. Anyone who wishes to swim with the Orcas can make contact with Colm Daly and any other members of the group and will be very welcomed.
