    See you in a moment guys. If anyone can't make it for the swim, feel free to join us for a tea afterwards. I made a reservation at Fitzgerald's (http://fitzgeraldsofsandycove.webs.com/), everything else was full for Sunday or not taking reservations. Hope it's ok. See you!

    Guys, it's raining a lot over in Rathmines at the moment, so if it doesn't clear up in half an hour I am afraid I won't be coming today...as I have to cycle to Sandycove.

  • Nichola

    I like it a lot Veronica. Thanks for putting this up. But can you organise a big screen out in the bay so I can watch the Wimbledon Men's tennis finals at the same time?

    July 3, 2014

    • Nichola

      Best to stick with what you've got methinks, there's been too much tooing and frooing about meet up times of late. Anyway, will leave it in your capable hands Veronika!

      1 · July 3, 2014

    • Veronika

      Well, I would have changed it if people were more inclined towards a later time, but there are six people confirmed at the moment, so it wouldn't make sense now. 3pm it is.
