As Galway Bay FM reports, the documentary was directed by local filmmaker Pat Comer and pays tribute to the hundreds of swimmers who've taken to the water at Auginish and crossed the bay to Blackrock Diving Tower in Salthill since 2006 in honour of the late Frances Thornton and to raise finds for cancer support.
"The documentary really captures the essence of the swim and everyone that takes part in a voluntary or swimming capacity," said David O'Donnell of Cancer Care West.
Registrations open this Sunday 20 March for the 11th swim, scheduled for Saturday 23 July. Galway Bay FM has more on the story HERE.
