    I would say you are very brave. Some of my co-workers are trying to convince me to participate in the local polar bear plunge. I just don’t think I have it in me!

    My daughter did the swim this Christmas for Crumlin. She went in with hundreds of others in her bikini! It was absolutely freezing but I was so proud of her. It was our first year watching and I couldn’t believe how many participated. The swims were at 10, 11 and 12. Huge crowds and so many young people.

    Goodness, wish I was so brave! The 40-Foot is our favourite place to watch similar brave folk. Thanks for posting. I too may want to repost this over at In an Irish Home…if that’s ok with you. Wishing you all the best. Kim
