Dip at Dawn

Dip | Splash | Swim

Friday, 21st June 2024

This June 21st at sunrise Dip, Splash, Swim, and join the thousands of people across the world in a dip at dawn for Vision Ireland.


The brainchild of Senator Martin Conway, who has lived most of his life with sight loss. Martin knows the struggle of those who are faced with sight loss so on June 21st he is asking you to take to the sea, river, bath, sink, and dip at dawn as we welcome in the longest day of the year as a symbol of support for the 296,000 people in Ireland who are blind or vision impaired. Dip at Dawn is proudly supported by Costcutter.
