Dundalk Sub-Aqua Club was set up in 2001 by number of experienced local divers who joined together to pool their knowledge of local/national dive sites and diving experience achieved in other clubs north and south of the border, but who felt it was time to bring it home and set up our very own dive club. Since then the club has grown from strength to strength, taking on new people every year for training.
We are affiliated to the Irish Underwater Council (Comhairle Fo Thuinn) CFT and we currently have 40 members, the majority of which are active divers
You will see us quite frequently on the shores of Greenore Co. Louth at the entrance to Carlingford Lough getting ready to launch our boats for a dive on one of the many dives sites in this area. We are spoilt for choice in the Lough as there are a total of nine dive sites to choose from, be it wrecks, reefs, or drift dives.
But just as you want to jump into your boat now to dive ‘The Lough,’ be aware that this area is extremely tidal and has dangerous currents, so our dives have to be carefully planned to ensure a comfortable and safe dive is enjoyed by all.
In between local diving we occasionally travel further afield to dives sites in Donegal, Rathlin Island, Strangford Lough, Scotland and other areas too numerous to mention, and we are very partial to an odd holiday abroad, be it Spain, Croatia, Dominican Republic or Red Sea we like to broaden our horizons.
