Weather hits epic Ice Mile challenge in Co Wicklow

This weekend's International Ice Mile swimming event in Lough Dan in Co Wicklow has been postponed due to treacherous weather conditions.

The event will now take place in Dublin's Clontarf Baths tomorrow.

Sixteen of the world's hardiest swimmers were due to take part in the extreme challenge, which sees participants swim one mile in open water of five degrees Celsius or less, wearing nothing more than standard swimming togs, a cap and goggles.
