Kilkee Sub Aqua Search and Recovery will launch their new boat on December 3rd.

Volunteers from the club have assisted in missing persons searches in the past including as recently as September at the Blue Pool near Doonbeg.

“An Tumadóir” will be officially blessed by Fr. Gerry Kenny at the event which will be attended by local businesses and clubs and further a field that have supported and helped the Search and Recovery unit over the past year.

Club PRO Niall Keating said: “This launch and day is a thank you to the sponsors for all their support to the club. There will be music and food/snacks and the day.”
