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.  It takes place in the National Aquatic Centre on the 21st-22nd April. Organised by Brian & Laura Daly in memory of their son Ian, this event has been going strong since 2004.
