#LiffeySwim - RTÉ journalist Paul O’Flynn fulfilled his “lifelong dream” of winning the Liffey Swim men’s race in the event’s 99th running yesterday afternoon (Saturday 1 September).

The Half Moon Swimming Club member finished with a time of around 43 minutes with an eight-minute handicap, as RTÉ News reports.

Trina Muldoon of Clontarf Swimming Club won the women’s race on the course that ran from St James’ Gate to the Custom House.

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.
