If you are organising a charity swim event, you have a responsibility to ensure adequate water safety measures are in place, to reduce the possible risks to attendees. Water Safety Ireland provides guidelines for a number of charity swim types including charity dips, swims up to 3km and swims over 4km.
Organisers should also be aware of the following:
- It is appropriate to inform local Gardaí about the event.
- An application to the local authority may be required for permission to access the location.
