Pics: A lot of brave souls braved the elements for a Christmas swim (or run) today

Fair play to them.

THE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS swim is a tradition for many people across the country and today was no different.

It’s been a very changeable day with some strong winds and rain in some parts, but relatively mild temperatures of between 10 to 14 degrees meant today perhaps wasn’t as cold as other years.

As well as swimming, some committed runners were out for a mile long jog in aid of Goal in Killiney.
