What is Swim a Mile With A Smile?

The Ian Daly Swim a Mile with a Smile is a charity fundraiser in aid of Barretstown and Crumlin Children’s Hospital.  This year, it is due now to take place in the Ballyfermot Pool in the Ballyfermot Sports and Fitness Centre, Dublin on the 19th and 20th of September 2020.  Organised by Brian & Laura Daly in memory of their son Ian, this event has been going strong since 2004.

In 2019 participants helped raise an amazing €25,000.  To date the Daly family have raised an amazing €607,000 for the two charities since the event began 16 years ago
