Strip & Dip 2024

Strip and Dip started 11 years ago, organised by Deirdre Featherstone who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2012. Deirdre wanted to raise money for Childhood Cancer and from the first 50 brave women on the beach in 2013 to now thousands who join, the event has grown from strength to strength. To date €1,059,000 has been raised for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie and our funding has helped greatly to buy a house near Crumlin Hospital for the families going through Childhood Cancer. 

In 2018 we received a Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Skinny Dip and in 2020 we received another world record for a Virtual Dip (during covid).

Join us for the 11th Strip and Dip on 8th June 2024 at Magheramore Beach Wicklow. 

To register, just click on the register button.

100% of funds raised will go to Aoibheann’s Pink Tie – Ireland’s National Cancer Charity. 

The event is females only over 17s.

We would love you to join us on this great day and if you can’t join us, please donate to help us reach our goal for the kids. Many people who dip might have been through cancer or other issues, or may just want to do it for the fun of it.  Women supporting Women always. Plenty of women do this by themselves and meet friends for life on the day.

Please join our Facebook Group for more fun and banter about the day –

Who are you supporting?

All funds raised from the Strip & Dip will go directly towards Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.

We are a charity that assists the families of children suffering from childhood cancer and who are attending St John’s Oncology Ward in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie was set up in 2010 after our friend and Chairperson Jimmy Norman’s daughter, Aoibheann, passed away. During their long battle with cancer, Jimmy and his wife Annmarie met with a lot of parents going through the trauma of having a child with cancer, and more specifically identified with the financial burden that inevitably follows diagnosis.  We are a registered charity affiliated with St John’s Oncology Ward in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.  We are also affiliated with the Irish Cancer Society.
