AFAIK there was a group called Out To Swim which held weekly swims in the Markieviecz pool in Dublin city centre. Not sure if they're still around.

T'was G-Swim. Don't think they're still active, or the keep a low profile if they are.

Wet n Wild group do the odd swim at Seapoint some Sundays.

Yes...we give a whole new meaning to the doggy paddle.

Plenty of swimming clubs around the country. Help with technique or just motivation being around another group. As much reason for a gay swimming club as a gay club of anything else.

That and I think the trunks tend to be assless in gay swimming clubs.

I think this is probably what is confusing me more than anything else, it is sad that we still have segregations for what seem like regular activities to me, I know we have the gay choir, gay rugby club, gay running clubs.
I can't think of any activities that should be restricted by sexuality other than sexual ones.

Many people still find it hard to meet other gay people. A club is a great way to meet them and a common interest or activity is there to break the ice unlike going to a bar or club where there's incredible pressure to appear sociable or to make a great impression on someone else, first time.

To meet up regularly with a group that isn't based around making that impression is a blessing.

Erytheis - why are you on a gay forum?

I'm not trying to be funny; I'm just making a point. Really there is little difference between Gaire and a gay sports club when you get right down to it.
Many people come to gay forums to make friends. In much the same way that many people join gay clubs to make friends. Either one is a better alternative to meeting gay people in a noisy, drunk-filled bar.
