Quotes from MLS 2012:

Quotes from MLS 2012:
"Tougher than Alcatraz! The Moville Lighthouse Swim is tougher than Alcatraz."
"I was in Sligo last week, and swam in the Warrior of the Sea - that was nothing compared to this! Only real warriors swim The Moville Lighthouse Swim."
"That distance may be 1.5km as the seagull flies, but for the effort & work required in Lough Foyle, the Moville Lighthouse Swim is equivalent to 3km."
"I have participated in many swims, but I have never seen water like that seen in the Moville Lighthouse Swim."
