THE VAMPIRE Swim is set to take place this Halloween in Limerick as part of Samhain: Limerick's Halloween Festival.
The Vampire Swim is an international blood drive by open water swimmers world-wide. Limerick’s Second Vampire swim in aid of the Blood Bikes Mid West, is brought to you by Lumen Street Theatre in conjunction with Limerick Narwhals winter swimming as part of Samhain: Limerick's Halloween Festival.
The Vampire Swim is an international blood drive by open water swimmers. The Swim is an informal open water swim/dip and costume party held around Halloween in approximately 20 venues in Ireland, Scotland, Ontario, and around the United States.
Swimmers are asked to register their interest to donate blood at giveblood.ie or if they are a regular donor, just bring along their donor card.
This year Limerick is official venue, swimmers will donate warm-blood in the month prior to the swim, to take a cold dip in the Shannon for what is sure to be a fang-tastic event. Swimmers will be encouraged to dress up for the blood curdling occasion.
The event will take place at The Curraghour Boat Club between 18:30 to 20:30
