The Great Irish Dive In takes place on Sunday the 31st of July

May 12 2016 Posted by Office Administraton

The Making Diving Visible workgroup, which includes members from some of the Irish Dive Centers and The Irish Underwater Council, have devised an initiative to make the sport of diving, in all it’s forms, more visible to the non diving Irish public.

Ireland has one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world and now we also have the Wild Atlantic Way, the longest Defined Coastal Route in the world. People in Ireland know about these, but how many people know that we have some of the best diving in the World? Diving in Ireland is actually the best kept secret in the world. But lets change that!

On the Sunday the 31st of July, divers all over the country will be invited to take part in The Great Irish Dive In. From South to North, East to West splashes will be heard as divers take the plunge in this great Irish Dive In. We will be asking you to upload your Images, Stories and Videos to our Facebook page Great-Irish-Dive-In

Whoever you are diving with, centre or club, wherever you will be diving on July 31st (the Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend) highlight it by posting your pictures, videos and stories on our facebook page: Great Irish Dive In ( We will have prizes for the entries with the most likes!

You don’t have to go anywhere special, your local dive sites are fine, wear a funny hat, take a photo of a strange fish, make a video of you day, write a story, give us the quote of the day…Let your imagination go wild

We will be contacting the National Press, and we are looking for your help to contact the local media in your area and tell them about your event. Lets get the country talking about diving and raise the profile of our sport, so that we can attract more people into it. The aim is to showcase that it is possible to dive in Ireland, that we have fantastic diving and that diving in Ireland is FUN

Let’s all work together on this to start a process of increasing the number of new divers into diving in Ireland, by showing non divers what they are missing by not being involved in diving
