SUNDAY 8 June 2008 marked the centenary of the opening of Warrenpoint Baths. To mark the occasion the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association (ILDSA) organised an open water swim over a course starting at the beach at the Baths out to Gunnaway Rock and back. Warrenpoint Baths were opened on 8 June 1908 to try to establish Warrenpoint along with other “watering places” that were considered to be leaving Carlingford Lough behind as a tourist attraction.
