Lá an Dreoilín i mBleá Cliath

Lá an Dreoilín ar Trá Cnocán Doirinne, Bleá Cliath, ag feachaint amach trasna bá Bleá Cliath ar teach solais Poolbeg!

The Wrens Day on Dollymount Strand, Dublin, looking out over Dublin Bay to Poolbeg Lighthouse!

No swimming today though! The tide was too far out 😉


Our Christmas Dip!

Well Guys, We did it!

At 11am on December 25th, Jenny, Mom and I plunged into the icy waters at Portmarnock with an air temperture of -3.5 degrees celsius! I will officially NEVER moan about the cold again!

Joined by our family for support, hugs, hot water bottles and flasks of hot port and mulled wine, we completed our challenge which saw us raise over 1000 Euro (and counting!) for St Francis Hospice Raheny!
Thanks to all who have supported us and to those who donated!

So well done Mom and Jen, who were silly enough to join me!

Hey guys!

I have decided in a moment of madness to brave the Irish seas on December 25th in the name of charity! For those who know me I don’t like being cold or wet! I am a girl who lives in a onesie and her snuggie! So this is my marathon! I will be trying to raise a few bob for St Francis Hospice Raheny who provided palitive care for my beloved Gogs (Grandad) and invaluable support to my whole family! My Gogs passed away in February 08 and our last Christmas with him was very tough as he was very frail and ill. This has left Christmas in ours a little sad.. so asides from raising money I hope to bring some cheers to the house! And I hope to get the mother in too!

I know this is a bad time to be asking for donations, but any donation no matter how small is appreciated! If you cannot donate thats cool, but could you please spread the word! Donations of Hot Ports are also accepted! Location is still not decided on location so suggestions welcome.. needs to be Northside Dublin!

Go raibh míle maith agaibh!

Here’s the link for donations!
