Lough Sheelin On A Beautiful Irish Day

Stalwart open water swimming organizer and promoter Martin Cullen reported on the Lough Sheelin Swim Championships in Ireland.

Chris Bryan from Limerick set a scorching pace and over each of his four laps, he got faster and faster finishing in a time of 2 hours and 6 minutes.
