A Donegal man has completed the first “Finswim” around the entire Irish coastline – all in aid of charitable causes.
Henry O’Donnell from Carrickfinn began the challenge in 2020 before the Covid pandemic and other commitments postponed his efforts.
Yesterday he finished his two-year long swimming campaign, ending his swim – the first around Ireland involving the use of fins alone – at Carrickfinn beach where it all began for him.
The swim has also raised over €46,000 for the Irish Cancer Society and Water Safety Ireland in the process.
