'I don't want to die in pyjamas, I want to die in my togs' - Elderly Irish sea swimmers star in inspiring video

Three elderly Irish people have opened up about why they love swimming in treacherous waters in an inspiring video.

In the video 'The Invincibles', produced by Dulux Ireland, the Cork swimmers explain the rush they get when they step foot in the open water, even though people may question its safety.

"I enjoy being perceived as an eccentric. [The water is] like a friend who can turn on you for no apparent reason," says Tom McCarthy (63) from Carrigaline.

"Your whole body is tingling, like the blood is rushing through your body like champagne. It's effervescent.

"I don't want to die in my pyjamas. I don't want to die in my boots. I want to die in my togs."

Myrtleville Swimmers Tom Bermingham said it's the biggest adrenaline rush he gets.
