The first Billy Jesson Christmas Swim took place the year he died (2002) and was followed with a Golf Classic a year later. Over the past seven years over 60k has been raised for the Hospice and the Marie Keating Foundation.
Times have changed and it is more difficult to raise money but the Portmarnock community is a generous one and last Christmas day more than 60 locals braved the elements of the Irish Sea and this year we hope the swim will be bigger and better then ever!
Why not join us for a swim, or just come down and soak up the atmosphere; the swim is at 11.00 am and it’s a great start to Christmas morning...there will be plenty of hot whiskey and mulled wine and prizes for the best dressed!
