Five members of Cahir Dive Club (CDC) departed for Helvic, near Dungarven early Sunday morning. Only four of these five divers braved the elements (with the help of dry suits) of the cold March waters to dive The Rogue, a rock out-crop, near Mine Head, where plenty of fish life was on display.
Three dives were completed. John and Ciaran did the first dive, which, according to Ciaran was just like the movie “Finding Nemo” due to the “cute” baby jellyfish sighted by him. Diarmuid and Tess weren’t feeling too energetic so they decided to do a drift dive. Pollack, Bream, Anglerfish, a variety of Sponges and Anmones, a Spider Crab and two Lobsters were among the sea life inhabiting The Rogue on Sunday.
The first lecture for new members doing the Ocean Diver course took place on Monday 30th March in the Hill Bar, Cahir (by kind permission). Pool training will commence in the next few weeks.
Sports divers will be seen later this week wandering around the surrounding area of Cahir Castle practicing their compass skills under the supervision of Johnny Sheehan…if they appear to be lost please help them out and point them in the right direction.
On St. Patrick’s Day CDC took part in the Cahir parade. Much fun was had by members’ children on the boat, with all showing great Water Pistol skills.
