In pictures: Taking the plunge at Sandycove's Christmas swim

Hundreds turned out to brave the icy waters at Dublin’s Forty Foot this morning for the annual event. Brrrr…

HUNDREDS TURNED out to take part in the annual Christmas Swim at Dublin’s Forty Foot in Sandycove this morning.

We’ve rather enjoyed looking at photos of people plunging into the icy waters today from a much drier, warmer location.

Here’s a selection of today’s swimmers:
