About Nuala Moore
I live in the South West of Ireland, Dingle. I swim in the most beautiful challenging waters, I am not a competitive person, in that life offers me enough challenges-To me the sea is the biggest competitor and myself. I am involved in Tourism and I am the secretary of the North Channel from Ireland to Scotland-with the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association. I organise swimming events in solid Open Water and Triathlon-with deep water starts , distances up to 6km. I am more challenge driven than achievement driven and preparation and learning is my journey.

I met Ram Barkai in NY in 2011 and was tempted to the Ice by my then, work/life time limitations but also from his presentations, the lure of the Ice. I love adventure and the journey as much as the achievement. I have been involved in swim organisation for 10 yrs and have enjoyed bringing swimmers into distance. The Ice allowed me to focus on myself again and my own journey. It brought me back to basics, being entry level. The sea only drops to about 7 deg so waiting for 5 and under took a year. I love team and working with information. I felt that the Ice would only be about pain management but I was wrong-it has allowed me to see so deep into my will power and my ability to manage myself. I have loved the travel and meeting so many people along the way. I have worked as team on so many amazing swims of huge distance up to 2,400m at 0 deg and have learned so much from the Ice since 2011-for me swimming my 1000m at 0 deg in March 2013 was my greatest personal moment at lower temps.
