2 brave adventurers are attempting to swim the whole way around Ireland in under 4 months


David Burns and Maghnus Collins have been undertaking adventures for the past eight years, but they are about to embark upon what looks like being their biggest challenge yet.

With assistance from Phillip Hatton (Expedition Lead) and Leish McPartland (In-water Support), on 1 June near Dalkey, weather permitting, they will begin the 360 Swim — effectively a 1600km round Ireland swim, which has never before been completed.

This arduous journey is expected to take between 90 and 120 days, with the duo set to be backed by a land-based and water-based support team.
