Artane Man Swimming To Scotland For Charity


Noel McGuinness talks to FERGAL SOMMERVILLE about swimming from Co. Down To Scotland in aid of Aislinn Adolescent Addiction Services.

Fergal only took to long-distance swimming five years ago to help with his back problems. Since then he has swum the English Channel and done a number of other long-distance swims in aid of a variety of charities.

Fergal was born in Artane and now lives in Beaumont. He says his father taught him to swim, and also taught everyone else on the street.
