There was an international flavour to this year's event with a number of those taking part travelling from the U.S., England and France. There were also entries from all corners of Ireland.
Water Safety Week was successfully tutored by Karen and Paul Tighe, Simon and Daniel Hanna, Jane Hanley, Simon Wilson and Darragh Murphy and assisted by two trainees, Luke Hanley and Karen Kane. They are some of the youngest teachers in the country.
Examiners James McLoughlin and Noreen O'Connor were very pleased with the standard of tuition and the positive atmosphere. The event was organised by Sligo Water Safety Chairperson, Mary Tighe, assisted by Amanda and Paul Hanna.
Mary Tighe said : "The enthusiasm of the participants and their families and friends helped make the week a tremendous success."
"We are working hard to highlight water safety awareness and this was the biggest event in Ireland," she added.
Here are just a couple of important points to remember while enjoying your holiday on Enniscrone Beach. We strongly recommend that you speak to a lifeguard on duty for advice on how to stay safe. Please do not swim near the rocks to the right of the beach at the Old Cliff Baths.
Ask the on duty lifeguards for safety advice.
Always do what the lifeguard tells you
Only swim between the yellow and red flags.
Never go near the water when the red flags are flying
Never swim alone
Do not swim after eating
Do not swim when you are hot, tired or feeling unwell
Do not swim too far out from the shore
Swim parallel and close to the shore
The area between the black and white flags is reserved for surfing.
