Red and white suits at the ready, it’s Santa scuba time!

A group of 100 scuba divers will wear their best Santa suits on 22 December and plunge into the sea off Sandycove Beach, Dublin to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).

The event at the Dun Laoghaire beach in Ireland has taken place every year since 2014, raising more than €8,000 to date since it was started by Karen Kenny of Dublin University Sub Aqua Club.

The event attracts scuba divers from far and wide, encouraging them to gear up for a Christmas inspired fun-packed day of diving to give back to the RNLI – an organisation dedicated to saving lives at sea.

The dive day will kick off at 11am on 22 December at Sandycove beach, Sandycove Avenue West, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, with mince pies and mulled wine up for grabs for those involved. More details can be found on the Facebook page.
