Seamus honoured by Sub Aqua club after 30 years of membership

The Wexford Sub Aqua Club's recent AGM was anything but ordinary, at least for member Seamus Furlong, who was left confused when his family arrived at the the meeting.
However things soon became crystal clear when the Murrintown man's fellow club mates treated all present to a special photo archive in honour of Seamus' 30 years in the club. The archive, which consisted of family photos, club photos and videos, allowed all present to take a look back on his dedicated service.
Seamus is renowned among his fellow club members for being a great asset servant to the club and is particularly highly-regarded for fixing boat engine problems and driving the build of their Kilmore Quay clubhouse. To show their appreciation for three decades of work, his club mates made him an honorary member. Seamus joins club founder Denis Martin with the honour.
Diving has become a family affair for the Furlongs. Seamus has passed the torch to his daughter Karen and granddaughter Keara, who are also members of the club.
