Things looked great when we arrived late on Friday night for our weekend away, flat calm in the harbour. It wasn't to last.

By morning the predicted high winds had arrived and sea conditions had gone downhill. We got one dive in on Saturday morning but had to write off the afternoon. Sunday was even worse so the poor old boat and divers never saw the water again for the rest of the weekend.

Killybegs 2012

on Wed, 2012-10-24 10:54

Great time in Killybegs last weekend. 11 Club Members made the trip from Galway to Donegal. John Sheahan, ably assisted by Thomas Moore, towed Joe Fada while Gareth Rogan towed the club compressor (thanks guys!). It was my first time to dive out of Killybegs and was suitably impressed with the facilities to hand.

The proximity of the large slipway to the Tara Hotel made transition from boat to shower a joy, especially when you have a leaking dry suit!!

May bank holiday - Killala

on Tue, 2012-05-08 15:02

This year we went to Killala, Co. Mayo for the May bank holiday. Two boats, sixteen divers staying in the Old Deanery holiday cottages right down by the waterside with pubs and food in walking distance. Low tide on Saturday morning meant that we weren't going to be able to launch the boats until lunchtime so people took full advantage on Friday night :)

Thanks a lot to the Killala Coast Guard unit who helped us out with storing the boats
