    Hi, I took part in Tri an Mhí yesterday, weather was brutal, non stop rain. Probably most enjoyable swim I’ve had. Water was crystal clear and even tasted like fresh water compared to the Bressie Iron Mind and Lanesboro lakes which tasted awful and had an unpleasant odour. Didn’t see any other Belpark member. Definitely doing the Olympic distance there next year. Philip Blake.
