A new series of the television programme "Abhainn" has begun on RTÉ. There are three parts in this series: one about the River Barrow, one about the River Blackwater (Munster) and one about the River Erne. In the second episode, the one about the Blackwater, Owen O'Keefe from the Martin Duggan Memorial Swim will be talking about the swimming history of the Blackwater in Fermoy and the magic of swimming in the river.
The episode about the Blackwater will be broadcast on Monday, 4th February, at 19:30 on RTÉ One. This programme will be broadcast in Irish but will be subtitled in English. This is the fourth series of the programme and Cláracha Gaeilge are making a great job of it – it would be worth your while to take a look at one or two episodes of it on RTÉ Player if you get a chance. We thank the producers for giving us this great insight into Ireland's inland waterways.
