Event Details

Whether you are a dedicated dipper or a super-enthusiastic open water swimming, you are welcome to join Midlands Science for a Swim Ireland supervised dip and swim at Lough Ree, Coosan Point, Athlone. Following your dip or swim [no pressure, it’s up to you how far you want to go], hot food and refreshments will be served in the Lough Ree Inn and an interview will take place with Catherine Kelly, author of “Blue Spaces”, the best selling book which explores why we love swimming and water so much.

It turns out that blue spaces have a range of unique effects on our physical and mental health and Catherine Kelly has explored this topic for years as a geographer. So dive in and join Midlands Science and Swim Ireland for a swim, food and a fun discussion. Midlands Science Festival is supported by the Science Foundation Ireland Discover Programme as part of national Science Week.
