We are very grateful for funding from sponsors that has helped keep the club running over its long history.
Dublin University Central Athletics Committee (DUCAC)
DUCAC has long given us vital yearly funding to allow us to replace and upgrade equipment, and to help students with travel and training expenses.
Trinity Association and Trust
The Trinity Association and Trust has assisted us with a number of major purchases, such as replacing club boats. Most recently, they made a major contribution to a new engine that will give our Tornado boat a new lease of life.
The Trust receives a large part of its income through the Trinity Affinity Credit Card, available to Trinity alumni, staff and students. Details of the card scheme can be found here.
Cathx Ocean make superb dive torches, amongst other things, and in the last two years they’ve very kindly given us a few of their Euphos handheld torches to raffle. One now adorns Muriel’s wrist, so if you’ve been diving in the same waters and wondered what that glow is, now you know. Other Cathx torch winners include Fergal, seen in the photo below looking exceptionally chuffed.
Flagship Scuba is a long-established dive shop based in a ship in Bulloch Harbour in Dalkey. Over the years, Rory Golden of Flagship has helped us with deals on equipment for trainees, and has donated some terrific prizes for raffling in our fundraising efforts – most recently an Apeks regulator set won by a lucky santa at our recent Santa Scuba Dive, which raised €2400 in aid of the RNLI.
