#LiffeySwim - The 98th Liffey Swim on Saturday (9 September) was a double for Dublin Swimming Club, according to BreakingNews.ie.

Colin Monaghan and Anne Marie Bourke won the men’s and women’s races respectively over the 2.2km course from the Rory O’Moore Bridge at Croppies Acre to the Loop Line Bridge.

Nearly 500 swimmers took part in the near-century-old institution, now run annually by Leinster Open Sea Swimming and the only swimming race through a European capital, says TheJournal.ie.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
