An Irish Sea first is happening this morning. Hundreds of men are wading into the wintery waves at a beach in Skerries in Co Dublin to raise funds for male cancer care at the Mater Public Hospital. The Dickie Dip is "an all-male, bare-all swim" with participants "braving the Irish Sea wearing only a dickie bow at a secret location in Skerries." Organiser Dermot Higgins says the Dickie Dip is a life-affirming event. "It's not a nice day but we are going to dip into the Irish Sea today to raise funds for prostate cancer care."
