Local diving club on RTÉ

Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club will be featured on RTÉ's Winning Streak TV programme this Saturday, May 25th, at 8.30pm.


A RTÉ crew was filming in Dromineer last Thursday ahead of the 'Good Causes' feature, which highlights how National Lottery funding is put to good use. This year Lough Derg SAC purchased a new boat with the help of the funding. The club's old boat was in need of replacement and is now available for sale. The new vessel will enable the local club to maintain its voluntary Search & Recovery service not just on Lough Derg but all over the country.


Lough Derg SAC's Search & Recovery divers have been involved in all manner of search operations over the years, from searching for missing persons to recovering equipment and valuable items that have been lost underwater. Affiliated with Comhairle Fo-Thuinn (the Irish Underwater Council), Lough Derg SAC supports community events by way of boat cover for water-based sports such as regattas and triathlons. Our divers have also removed rubbish and debris from the water at local lakeside amenity areas as part of An Taisce's Spring Clean initiative.


The club was delighted to have been chosen for the National Lottery programme and to arrange another opportunity for RTÉ's cameras to focus on Dromineer. See our Facebook page for more information.
