Christmas 2006 in Galway - St. Stephen's Day Swim in Salthill

The traditional swim on St. Stephen's Day on the Salthill promenade attracts dozens of participants and hundreds of onlookers every year.
In spite of the cold harsh weather that one would expect in December, quite a hardy number of folk go swimming. Female as well as male, old as well as young. Partipant and onlooker all are treated to the welcomed taste of hot beverages including mull wine!

I really enjoyed the event as I made loads of people that I had not seen for some time.
