Dundalk Sub Aqua Search & Rescue have been named as one of five finalists in the Sport category on this year’s National Lottery Good Causes Awards, as The Argus reports.

It comes just months after the Co Louth diving club celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Previously the volunteer SAR unit benefited from a National Lottery-funded sports capital grant for the purchase of a new RIB allowing for rescue attempts and training in more challenging conditions.

The winners of the 2022 National Lottery Good Causes Awards will be announced at a gala dinner this autumn.
