Henry Strzelecki MBE – Obituary

Mr Henry Strzelecki MBE

Henry Strzelecki, who died on Boxing Day aged 87, was known universally as “Mr. Henri”. He devoted much of his life to the benefit of others. Born in Poland, he became as English as the next man in his adopted city of Manchester. The transformation was neither easy nor immediate, but it was determined; he did not, however, shun his native land as could be evidenced by some of his later business developments.

Christmas Day swim in aid of Ballycotton lifeboat

Ballycotton lifeboat crew watch over swimmers

Event: Christmas Day Swim
Location: Garryvoe Beach, East Cork

For some the Christmas Day swim has become a tradition. This is a bit of fun that has raised money for charities over the years.
The annual Ballycotton lifeboat Christmas Day swim took place at Garryvoe Beach in East Cork. John raised the lifeboat flag at 7:30am heralding the event that was to take place in a few hours time. It was a fine sunny day and the cars started arriving at the beach from 11:00 am. By 11:50 the car park was full. For some the dinner was in the oven and they were taking time out to support this hardy band of people. For others, they were taking a detour on their way home from Mass. Wherever they were coming from this was not a day to be late. The fun starts at 12 noon on the dot.
