Annual swim weeks will take place from Monday 30th July to Friday 3rd August and from Monday 6th August to Friday 10th August, in Narin/Portnoo. This is an excellent chance for introducing children to sea swimming and for older children to progress their skills in swimming and in water safety. The emphasis as always will be awareness of safety in all open water environments. Registration will take place at the beach in Narin at 9am on the first Monday of each week and a timetable for the week will be communicated to parents at that stage. All welcome.
