Lads and lassies,

Limerick man Conor Hartnett is currently in the English Channel, a few miles off the French coast, having set out from the English side at 4am this morning.

Anyone interested can track his progress at http://www.smrc.ie (he's an ex St. Michael's Rowing Club member). If you're feeling generous, he's doing the swim to raise funds and profile for "The Smile Train" which is a charity for children with cleft lip and cleft palate. Details of how to donate are on the site. Thanks all.
