CHRISTMAS DAY 2008 ON THE GRAND CANAL IN INCHICORE , DUBLIN , AT THE ANNUAL CABHAIR FUND-RAISING SWIM : as expected – because of their now 32-years in the ‘business’ – CABHAIR put on a brilliant display yesterday at the Swim in Inchicore ! They had a crowd of about 100 people at the event , two tables groaning under the weight of various foodstuffs and ‘adult soup’ (!) , a twin-speaker music system , various banners , posters and plaques and , of course , a number of swimmers . And it stayed dry for the occasion ! This blog has received over thirty photographs of the event , and we have published same on this and three other sites – links to those sites can be found at the end of this post.
Enjoy the following pics , follow the links for more of same and please remember this – Irish Republican prisoners are not only in prison at Christmas time :
CABHAIR need your support throughout the rest of the year, too…..

Santa shows his support!

” Piece of cake . No , really – I just dropped-by for a piece of cake…”

Liam The Swimmer – smiling now that it’s over !

“My left arm’s frozen solid . Just grab my right one and get me outta here…!”

“Now I have to walk the plank…!”

Tastes better than canal water!

“WATCH OUT, folks – this timber is slippeee…!”

Two of the swimmers , thinking that they’d rather jump into the fire….

Too late for second thoughts!

“If anyone finds half of a pair of togs….”
