The Liffey Swim 2013
And now for something completely different. Why not watch some people braver than you do something that seems really, really silly and swim in the River Liffey – just for fun! To get a good view the Liffey Boardwalk is the best place, but get there early as everyone else in Dublin will be doing the same. Well, anyone who is not foolish enough to be jumping in anyway. The race was originally organised to highlight the pollution of the river in 1920 by Bernard Fagan and has become one of Ireland’s most famous, traditional sporting events.
