That's just the tip of what's available to explore beneath the surface along the capital's coastline, according to the Dublin Port Company. It's never been easier to get involved in the pastime, thanks to the efforts of the Irish Underwater Council (CFT). And a great place to start would be Dive Ireland 2014, the 23rd Annual International Dive…

#Diving - A man has died after a suspected heart attack while diving in Killary Bay yesterday afternoon (27 October), as the Irish Independent reports. Family have paid tribute to 52-year-old Gerry Deane, who was with friends on a diving trip at Ireland's only fjord when they got into difficulty as the Galway and Mayo region was lashed by strong winds and heavy rain. Emergency services were notified around 1.30pm when Deane failed to resurface. He was pulled from the…
