Hundreds turned up for the annual Christmas swim in aid of charity.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE lined up this Christmas Day, to jump off the famous Forty Foot pier in Sandycove for their Christmas swim.

Such swims happen all over the country with the aim of raising money for charity, and this one near Dun Laoghaire in Dublin is done in aid of the St John of Gods charity.

People have been swimming at the Forty Foot – rain or shine – for 250 years.

Today was a particularly rainy day in Dublin, but that didn’t deter the crowds that came out.
