Plunge Into Diving At Dive Ireland 2014

16th January 2014
Plunge Into Diving At Dive Ireland 2014

#Diving - Did you know that Dublin Bay alone has at least eight wreck diving sites, from the Marlay to the Vanguard?

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 Show at the New Park Hotel in Kilkenny City on 1 and 2 March.

All the latest dive equipment and gadgets will be displayed, and expert speakers will be on hand covering a wide range of interesting topics to cater for everybody’s interests.

Keynote speaker for this year's show will be adventure diver Andy Torbet, who will surely talk about some of the more extreme cave dives and freedives he's embarked upon.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
