TWCB made a comment there about the amount of Irish who can't swim. Indeed I'm met a lot of people who can't and it's always shocked me. Like being not able to ride a bike.
So, can you swim? And where and when did you learn?
I was brought for lessons somewhere near Killester I think around the age of 4. Was always back to catch Hi-De-Hi with Su Pollard. In primary school you had 8 weeks of lessons every year you were in the school. After that I was sorted and the new year means counting down the months to the first dip of the year.
Works for Damien Dempsey and it works for me.
