Clubhouse, Half Moon Swimming Club, Poolbeg, Dublin, Ireland
The Half Moon Swimming Club was founded in 1898 at the Great South wall in Dublin.The clubhouse sits approximately halfway along the great south wall, built originally in an area known as Poolbeg, to create a shipping channel into Dublin Port. It was once a station for an army gun battery whose function was to protect the entrance to the port. The gun turret was mounted in a 'half moon' shape, thus lending to the name of the club.
