#Innovation - Two very different aquatic breakthroughs have been listed among Silicon Republic's top 10 Irish innovations of 2015.
Redmond will use the funds to develop his Express Dive concept, a lightweight device that allows divers to refill their air supply on the goal – for a fraction of the cost of standard SCUBA gear.
Also covered this past summer on Afloat.ie was the discovery of a new habitat for coral in Irish waters.
Prof Andy Wheeler led an international team of marine scientists on the coral survey in June that ventured into the Porcupine Bank Canyon some 300km off Dingle and found an unexpected variety of life.
He added that it is "not unfeasible that there is over 100 sqkm of coral habitat that was previously unaccounted for."
