Dundalk Sub-Aqua Club has a vast wealth of experience and qualifications amongst its members, ranging from Monitor One Star, Leading Diver, Search & Recovery Diver, Club Diver to Trainee Diver.
Some of our members have been diving for up to 25 years and they contribute an enormous amount in terms of knowledge of local/national dive sites as well as experience in how to keep the club a vibrant and active one.
We try to keep the ‘dive season’ active all year round and not just when the weather is favourable as this keeps the momentum going and gives our divers experience in poorer conditions which may be of benefit if they wish to pursue the search and recovery aspect of our club.
We hold our training lectures in St Vincents School on a wednesday night at 7.30pm followed by pool training in Dundalk Leisure Centre pool at 9pm in the winter time, but move on to Greenore as soon as the evenings get brighter. We have a vast array of equipment within the club, from boats to compressors, to GPS systems, emergency AED & O2.
Any of you divers wishing to visit us for a dive please contact Finbar Dillon (our DO) on 00353 87 2843720 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The club also has an active Search & Recovery Unit. Our unit is going from strength to strength with the addition of new equipment to enable us to carry out searches more effectively and safely. In recognition of our services to Search and Recovery we were awarded a ‘People Of The Year Award’ in 2006 for Co. Louth. This was voted on by the people of Co. Louth.
Over the years we have managed to put together an impressive array of diving and search & recovery equipment. This was achieved through club membership fees and through the generosity of many folk who made contributions via the annual bucket collections or donations.
