Copper Coast

From Openwaterpedia

The Copper Coast is a stretch of the southern coast of Ireland in County Waterford. It is named for the historic metal-mining industry, the legacies of which now constitute a tourist attraction. The area was declared a European Geopark in 2001 and a UNESCO Global Geopark in 2004 in an attempt to boost the profile of the area as a tourist destination.

Open Water Swimming

Donal Buckley was the first person to swim along the entire Copper Coast in a series of solo unsupported swims.
