County Longford Scubadivers are based in Longford town. Since its formation this club has gone from strength to strength and includes junior members and trainee divers. During the winter months we have an intensive training schedule in Longford Pool. Lectures are given by experts and fully qualified divers on subjects such as science, gas laws and technical aspects of diving. Instruction is given on diving techniques, use of equipment and boat handling. Great emphasis is placed on general water safety.
We are a diving club, not a pay per dive shop so our emphasis is on diving as a team and on training our team to dive safely and to have fun while doing so.
After Easter we head for the rivers, lakes and the sea for open water training and regular diving trips. We continue exploring the waters around Ireland right up until the end of September. A few hardy souls have been known to venture out right through the winter. We organise weekends away over the spring and summer bank holidays.
Scuba diving opens up a whole new world.
