Wild Atlantic Pool
Warning for water activities in Lough Hyne…….
One of our members reports that he was attacked by a swan last week over at Lough Hyne. He had been swimming and was standing on the steps of the pier when a group of girls shouted a warning. When he looked around there was a swan in full flight, wings fully spread, advancing a few feet from him. He moved up the steps with remarkable speed for his age and away from the danger. He could see no reason for the attack, especially as he was already out of the water.
We have also heard that a diver was attacked recently in Lough Hyne by the same swan!!
There were two swans in the Lough over the last few years and now there appears to be only one. It has been suggested that this swan may have gone mad.
Please be safe when you swim wild.
