Also find attached group picture from last year. The Institute of Technology Sligo Sub Aqua Club is celebrating its 15th Birthday The club was set up in 1993 by Dr. Bill Crowe with the assistance of Enda Gibney, Dave Clarke, Noel Moran and Dr. Richard Thorn. In 1994 the club became affiliated to the Irish Underwater Council (C.F.T.). The main aim of the club is to introduce people to the world of scuba diving while acquiring internationally recognised dive qualifications (C.F.T./C.M.A.S.). Indeed members have dived in such diverse places as Australia, the Caribbean, Greece, Indonesia, Sweden, France, Thailand, South Africa, the Red Sea, the Canaries Islands as well as all around Ireland. In the first year (1993) the club had 10 active snorkelling members however several years later it has grown to an average of 50 new active member divers or snorkelers. This includes the following staff members through the years: 1 Mon 3: Richard Thorn 1 Mon 1: Bill Crowe 1 Leading Diver: Noel Moran 1 Club Divers: Arnaud Teyssou, Edna Gibney, Peter Byrne 1 Trainee Diver: Eammon Price In addition some club members hold other qualifications including PADI Open Water Diver & Advanced Diver, BSAC Diver Leader & Sports Diver. As well as other commercials qualifications. Club Activities The club hold weekly theory lectures and pool training sessions between October and December each year. These take place at 8.30 pm in the college and 10.00 pm in Sligo Sports Complex Pool respectively, on Thursdays for both. From December we start our outing, snorkelling in our cold Atlantic water. We generally dive on Saturday or Sunday mornings at Mullaghmore. We also organise few trips away during college holidays. If you have any queries about the club do not hesitate to contact Arnaud ext 375, Bill ext 357, Eamonn ext 410 or club secretary Niall O’ Flaherty firstname.lastname@example.org .
