The Seal & Marlin certification has been changed by Water Safety Ireland. What was 15 certs (Seal 1-5, Marlin 6-10 and Orca 11-15) is now condensed to 10 certs.
You must use the grid and information link below to select the correct class for your child.

If, for example, your child completed Marlin 8 in 2022 the equivalent of that in the new certification is Marlin 6.  Therefore you should register the child for Marlin 7 for this year. 




Booking 2023 Mountshannon Week 2 is now closed.

Info on content/requirements for classes are at the bottom of this page

Wetsuits, swim hats and goggles recommended but not required. All participants will receive a Water Safety swim hat.

It is important to stay in allocated groups - instructors may move candidates according to ability after swim assessments.




Seal & Marlin certificates will be presented in Fridays class. Your child may be moved classes midweek to best suit their Friday ability.

Safety & Rescue certificates are issued to our local cert secretary later in the summer. Please provide an A4 SAE with the location & class to the organisers/instructor if you wish your to be posted out. Otherwise they are always available for collection at classes the following year
