If you’ve want to try something a little different this September, Bogsnorkelling could be right up your street.
Applications are now open for the Irish Bogsnorkelling Championships that takes place on Saturday 10th September in Monaghan. Now in its 8th year, this event has been attracting an enthusiastic and ever growing crowd to participate.
The venue for the Irish national Bog Snorkelling Championships is Alice’s Loft & Cottages Self catering in Doohamlet, Castleblayney, County Monaghan.
Bog snorkelling involves competitors completing two consecutive lengths of a 60-yard (55 m) water filled trench cut through a peat bog, in the shortest time possible.
Competitors must wear snorkels and flippers, and complete the course without using conventional swimming strokes, relying on flipper power alone. Wet suits are not compulsory but are usually worn.
Looks like a fun weekend in September! So what are you waiting for?
