Polar Plunge for the special Olympics


It was a great honour to be present today in the National Maritime College of Ireland to witness Shamrocks Gaa club taking part in the Polar plunge to raise funds for the Special Olympics. This consisted of diving into the sea survival pool under simulated windy conditions with a heavy swell.  The six brave lads represented the club with great pride.



A lot of other participants were present to witness the Shamrock lads start the ball rolling as they along with two girls from the Cork ladies football team were first to do the dive. Kieran Lynam overcame his fear of heights and created a massive splash with he jumped in after the two girls from the Cork ladies football team. He got a great round of applause. Dick and David Andrews were both showing off their six packs but the judges declared David the winner after his great dive and getting the spectators involved in the build up with his overhead hand clapping. Dick wanted to lodge an appeal but Kathleen told him to be a man and accept the result. Tony O Sullivan was worried about his tan. He was assured that it wouldn’t wash off that easy. He dived with great authority and confidence. He too got a great score from the judges. David O Neill took the honours as the best local. He represented Ringaskiddy with great pride. He took to the pool as if he was doing it all his life. He also impressed the judges. Last up was Noel Kavanagh representing the Construction industry. He was impressed with the Cork Ladies and tried to better them. The judges thought for a time but the ladies got the higher scores. Noel was not that happy as he put in some serious training for this.


The club would like to thank all of the lad’s and their families who were present to witness this great event. It was great to see the lads in their Shamrocks colours to represent the club with great pride and honour.
