Our main fundraising event annually is the Splash Bash. This event is enjoyed by young and old. The day starts off with a Sandcastle competition for the younger kids followed by a series of Water and beach challenges for the older groups.
The Irish Coast Helicopter Rescue 115 visits us around 14:00 every year if they are not on a mission. Last year they took the time to do a training exercise.
The Obstacle course is completed by teams of three who fight to get the best time. The best times then proceed to Bridie Keating’s Pub for a Final. They is a BBQ and prize giving in Bridie’s after.
Splash Bash 2015 will be held on Sunday the 26th July. Registration will take place at 11:30 @ Derrynane Sea Sports. Email us for more details.
Splash Bash 2015 will be the biggest and best Splash bash to date. All new activities and obstacle courses. If you have any ideas for our event or would like to sponsor D.I.R and have you logo displayed on the day please contact us by email.
Have a look at crew member Mikey Martin being airlifted by Coast Guard Rescue helicopter Rescue 115 at Splash Bash 2014. It was a spectacular training exercise for the public to watch.
