International Prize For Irish Diving Invention

11th November 2015

#Diving - An Irish diving invention has won the runner-up prize of €7,000 in the international James Dyson Awards, as RTÉ News reports.

University of Limerick graduate Cathal Redmond rose above a field of 700 entries to scoop the funding to develop his novel 'Express Dive' concept.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, Redmond won the Irish James Dyson Award and took home €2,500 earlier this year for his revolutionary device, which allows divers to refill the one-litre tank while out on the water, providing enough air for two minutes beneath the surface.

The next step for the product design and technology graduate is to bring the device to market. RTÉ News has more on the story HERE.
