#DALKEY ISLAND SNORKEL - More than 100 participants took part in the St. Patrick's Day Dalkey Island snorkel fundraiser event in aid of the RNLI, where the local Dun Laoghaire lifeboat RNLB Anna Livia was hove to off Coliemore Harbour, writes Jehan Ashmore.

Some two hours after high-tide this morning the snorkelers set off from the harbour through Dalkey Sound and made an anti-clockwise circuit of the island.

The circuit took up to an hour to complete and their progress was monitored by a fleet of safety RIBS, with the last participants returning to the harbour around noon.

A crowd gathered overlooking the harbour where fundraising activities took place and it was hoped that the event would raise between €4,000 - €5,000.

The fundraiser was organised by the Marlin Sub Aqua Club on behalf of Comhairle Fó Thuinn (CFT) the Irish Underwater Council. The club was established in 1980 and operates from the Clondalkin Community Sports Centre in west Dublin.
