Poll: Have you had a swim in Irish waters this year?

Have you braved your local swimming spot yet?

TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE to rise today and are expected to pass the 30 mark later on in the week.

With the summer sunshine comes the overwhelming desire to cool off by having a dip at your nearest beach or lake.

The icy Irish waters tend to be a deterrent for swimmers but during a good spell like this a local dip should come as a welcome relief.

We’re asking: Have you had a swim in Irish waters yet?

Poll Results:

No (5846)
Yes (2905)
No interest/no opinion (418)
