We will be swimming the 10km Galley Head Sea Swim on Saturday the 22nd of July for 3 worthy causes: Marymount Hospice, Cancer Connect and Co Action. This swim starts on Red Strand around the Galley Head and finishes on the Warren Beach. We are swimming and remembering all those who have gone before us and who have fought brave battles with cancer, it has touched all our homes and families.
Our team is made up of our skipper Brendan who has made this possible by providing his boat and time with Niamh, Barbara and Bridget swimming the 10km distance.
Special mention to Niamh, who is swimming 5km of the swim in memory of her brother Kieran on the 5th anniversary of his passing. Kieran died from Cancer in July 2018 after a long battle and unfortunately there is hardly a house in Ireland that has not been affected in some way by this terrible disease.
We are asking for a donation please, to support these charities to help them to continue the great work they do.

Person-centredness challenges us to move away from providing services in segregated and centralised locations, because inevitably they may limit people's opportunities and 'disconnect
