Hundreds braved the cold to take their annual New Year’s Day plunge today.
THE FIRST DAY of 2018 was pretty cold, but that didn’t stop a few brave souls from getting into the sea for a dip this New Year’s Day.
Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin and Cork South West TD Margaret Murphy O’Mahony braved the windy conditions this afternoon, all in aid of Courtmacsherry RNLI.
However, Martin wasn’t the only politician to take to the water today.
Sinn Féin’s John Brady joined swimmers and spectators who turned out in their hundreds to celebrate the 35th annual Bray charities sea swim.
Hats off to all these brave people, and all in aid of some great causes.
