This year is the year of ‘The Gathering in Ireland’. If you haven’t heard about The Gathering concept before this is a spectacular, year-long celebration in 2013 of all things Irish (http://www.thegatheringireland.com/About).

Diver on Wall

Now Ireland has some amazing diving and so OceanAddicts are entering into the spirit of the year by hosting a Submerged Gathering here in Kinsale. The Submerged Gathering takes place on the weekend of 20-21/04/13 and any proceeds from the weekend will be presented to the RNLI. The weekend will be a mixture of diving and talking about diving and a chance to catch up with old friends and make some new diving buddies.

On the Saturday morning (registration will be at 9.30am) after a dive brief we will be heading out to the dive site for the ‘Submerged Gathering’. In the afternoon, there are presentations from Paul Rose will be joining them from the UK and their own John Collins, who will present two entertaining and informative talks. Later that evening there will be music in the bar of the Trident Hotel.

Embarr in KinsaleOn the Sunday we will go diving again. For those interested in Seasearch, Dr Tim Butter, CFT’s scientific officer, will be leading a dive and talking about seasearch and our marine environment.

For non-diving friends and partners there is also a seafood festival, with street markets on Saturday and a Chowder Cook Off on Sunday.
