Lee Swim 2008

Lee Swim

The Lee Swim took place on Saturday in the glorious sunshine of Cork.  I’m not sure if I’d be so quick to jump into the murky waters of the River Lee but it looked relatively clean from a distance on Saturday.  There was a great turnout for this event which was resurrected in 2005 having started in 1914.  I knew a couple of people doing it and am currently being harassed to do it next year.  Watch this space!

Lots more photos in the full set over on Flickr.  I also hope to resurrect Pana-Vision which will consist of plenty of sporting photos from the past month or so.

    Great shots! First I knew of it was when we were driving home and saw everyone on the bridges. Had a busy day and stopping to take photos was out of the question unfortunately :(

    Good luck with pana-vision, posting every day is a pain isn’t it?

    Despite the sunshine, that water looks a bit nippy!
