The 102nd Jones Engineering Dublin City Liffey Swim returned to its traditional on Saturday.

The iconic city swimming race once again travelled ‘down-river’ from Rory O’More Bridge at Watling Street beside the Guinness Brewery, winding 2.2K along the River Liffey, past The Four Courts and beneath O’Connell Bridge, to end at the steps of The Custom House on the North bank of the Liffey. This follows changes to the route last year in response to river works and crowd management during the pandemic. 

492 swimmers took part this year; 194 women and 298 men. The women’s race was taken out by Melissa Corbally from the National Aquatic Centre’s masters swimming club, and Ken Dent from the Dublin Swimming Club took the title in the men’s race.
