At Swim

Sea swimming is the great leveller, we’re all the same in a pair of togs. No one minds who you are or what you’ve done, the question is, “are you getting in?”’

And so began Brenan MacEvilly and Michael O’Reilly’s journey around Ireland, experiencing the places and people who daily, weekly or occasionally dip in their favourite spots – some well-known; others hidden gems – but all unique to the swimmers.

Wild Swimming in Ireland

Maureen McCoy and Paul McCambridge are no strangers to the marine environment having a live-long affinity with the waters that wash their birthplace of Co Down.

A swimming and diving coach from Hillsborough, Maureen has been swimming in the sea, loughs and rock pools ‘since I was very young and my childhood ambition was to swim the English Channel’ which she achieved in 2009.  Maureen always keeps a swimsuit in her car.
