On Saturday August 10th, Water Safety Ireland – Monaghan, had the official dedication and blessing of a commemorative bench to 3 deceased members of our local committee.

Michael J Kelly, Seamus Finnan and Niall Ó Lamhna were 3 instrumental figures in promoting water safety in Co. Monaghan and further afield. We were delighted to be joined by representatives from each of their families on the day. Former Chair of Irish Water Safety, Breda Collins from Kilkenny helped to unveil the bench and she was joined by instructors and examiners from Cavan, Monaghan and Dublin who were also present.

The bench overlooks Hollywood Lake where water safety classes ran for many years.
