HUNDREDS OF SWIMMERS are set to brave the elements to participate in this year’s Liffey Swim through Dublin city centre.
The 92nd Liffey Swim is set to start on Saturday at the Loop Line Bridge and finishes at the East Link Bridge. The men’s race kicks off at 11.15am and the women’s at 12.15pm. Lord Mayor of Dublin Naoise Ó Muirí is to present the winners’ cups at 2.15pm, while prizes will presented at a special reception for the swim at the Gresham Hotel at 7.30pm.
Visit Dublin recommends the Liffey Boardwalk as the best place to view the action, but you’ll need to get in early to make you have a good vantage point.
