A boat turns over as swimmers jump into the River Liffey, while they launched the 97th Dublin City Liffey Swim at North Wall Quay in Dublin today. The 97th Dublin City Liffey Swim takes place on Saturday (August 6), at Rory O’Moore Bridge, beside the Guinness Brewery, Dublin 8.

The men’s race begins at 1.30pm and the women’s race at 2.30pm. More than 400 swimmers will take part in this year’s race. The Dublin City Liffey Swim is organised by Leinster Open Sea, a not-for-profit voluntary organisation, and is sponsored by Dublin City Council.
