Maureen McCoy and Paul McCambridge
Maureen McCoy is an award-winning open-water swimmer, having swum in the sea, loughs and rock pools with her brothers since she was a small child. In 2009, just after her fortieth birthday, she fulfilled her childhood ambition to swim the English Channel. Her achievements have been widely reported and featured on BBC and UTV. Maureen enjoys outdoor swimming throughout the year and always keeps a swimsuit in her car – just in case.
Paul McCambridge has been a photographer for over twenty-five years. He has exhibited his work nationally and has won many awards over the years. He sees swimming outdoors as therapy and a way to reinvigorate the body.
