Ronan Keating to swim Irish seaMarch 25th, 2011 - 8:28 am ICT by IANS
London, March 25 (IANS) Irish pop star Ronan Keating is set to make a splash for a good cause by swimming the Irish sea to raise money for cancer charities.
The “Boyzone” singer is hoping to set a new Guinness World Record for open water swimming when he takes part in the relay with a 10-member team which will also include business tycoon Sir Richard Branson, reports contactmusic.com.
And Keating admits he’s nervous about braving the 90-km stretch from Dublin, Ireland to Holyhead in Wales.
“I’m not a strong swimmer so it’s going to be a real challenge for me,” he said.
The group aims to raise $1.6 million for Cancer Research Britain and the Marie Keating Foundation when they tackle the feat in September.
