Féile na Soilse
Dingle, Dec. 6th, 7th & 8th - 2013.
Dingle Chamber of Commerce, together with Dingle Peninsula Tourism are promoting Christmas on the Dingle Peninsula 2013 with a festive celebration entitled ‘Féile na Soilse’. This event was hugely successful over the last few years and we hope to build on that success this year with the addition of a number of special events to coincide with the official lighting of the Christmas Lights & Tree in the town.
Special events include:
Beidh Scoil Dhún Chaoin ag ceiliúradh 100 bliain ar an bhfód an bhliain seo chugainn.
Cuirfimíd fáilte mhór roimh ghrianghrafanna agus aon earraí cuimhneacháin eile a bheadh oiriúnach do Leabhar Cuimhneacháin na Scoile agus don taispeántas ar Stair na Scoile.
Cuirfear fáilte mhór leis roimh altanna ó éinne gur mhaith leo a gcuimhní cinn a bhreacadh síos ar shaol na scoile.
Dingle’s Nuala Moore has been nominated as World Open Water Woman of the Year. Having been part of the successful team who crossed the Bering Strait earlier this year the nomination caps a very satisfying 2013 for Nuala.
The World Open Water Swimming Association selects it’s nominees from “individuals with exceptionally inspirational exploits, histories and lifestyles. These individuals best embody the spirit of open water swimming, possess the sense of adventure, tenacity and perseverance that open water swimmers are known for, and have positively influenced the world of open water swimming”.
Steven Munatones from the association said of Nuala:
“Given the criteria, the choice of Nuala Moore was a slam dunk. Not only did she participate in ice swims around the world, swimming 1 km in water that was near 0°C, but she also was an integral part of the Bering Strait Swim and the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association with its busy summer of North Channel crossings. And true to her nature, she was always taking interest in and care of others on her team. “
Voting is open to everyone on the associations website

So get voting people..
