Swim Ireland has announced the launch of its new interactive online Swim Spot Map, a project funded by Sport Ireland’s Innovation Fund.
Swim Spots gives the user real-time weather, forecasts, tides and other local information, like parking and facilities about designated swimming areas.
“This interactive map is a new feature on our new website meandthewater.ie, which was launched earlier this summer to support Swim Ireland’s Me and the Water Membership for leisure swimmers who particularly love outdoor swimming,” says Swim Ireland.
Adam Cox, Swim Ireland’s Head of Clubs and Community, said: “We were very grateful to receive funding through Sport Ireland’s Innovation Fund, which has helped us develop a website that will provide you with all the information you need to swim outdoors and to connect with your tribe.
“In developing this project, we worked closely with Sport Ireland’s Local Sports Partnerships to gather as much data as we could to ensure that people could access the most up to date and relevant information for their chosen spot.
“We are also excited that you will also be able to connect with other swimmers and local ambassadors to answer your questions on swim spots around the country.
“We have 200 open water swimming locations to date and will be adding more constantly.
“We also want images and feedback from users, and as we continue to build our Me and the Water tribe, we believe that this Swim Spots Map will further help connect people together.”
