Poll: Would you swim in the Liffey today?

The 100th Liffey Swim is due to take place today.

THE 100TH LIFFEY Swim is due to take place in the city centre today despite warnings from the HSE and the council. 

Dublin City Council tested the water quality after sewer debris was discharged into the Liffey following heavy rains earlier this week. The HSE has also said that swimming in the water “may cause illness”.

This morning we want to know: Would you swim in the Liffey today? 

Poll Results:

Not a hope  (12041)
