AFC Marine Explorer Shares Experience with Irish Youth

Whilst undertaking my scuba training course in Ireland, the new trainees were constantly reassured to the benefits of diving in our little country. They don't sound too alluring.....wet and windy conditions, fast flowing currents, icy cold temperatures, poor visibility (sometimes needing to be measured in inches rather than metres!), risk of separation from your buddy as well as the boat and the extra complication of having to dive in a dry suit!
