Doonbeg Dive & Aughinish BBQ

Well, the Dive planned for Kilkee, got re arranged due to long trek to move boat back from Doolin to Killkee, so we stopped off in Doonbeg to launch. Depsite the slagging about the absense of walls on the Slip, we had a cracking dive, a lotta of life, a huge Conger and a small angular fish and Richard managed to see a Tope. Despite the desire to dive Blue Pool, we ended up at some dive spot yet to be titled. Difference of opinion as to what was the Blue pool dive site, but, never mind.  The dive boat of six divers plus the ever resourceful Ciaran vowed to work diving out of Doonbeg again.

From Doonbeg Blue Pool Saturday
From Aughinish BBQ and Sunday in Kilkee

The evening was rounded off with a nite out with rest of the regional club helping Aughish to celebrate 25 years of diving.  A great nite in the Skinny.  While others ventured to lend an ear to Rod Stewart in concert.  Smile Hope Caroline made it in time…

Fears of poor diving conditions today were a myth and the kilkee slip was a hive of actvity.

Hope mid week is good for diving and the DO is looking at running Diving out of Kilkee and Doonbeg on Saturday and Sunday with a plan to run a night dive on Saturday night if there is sufficient interest in it.
