Salthill’s big yellow diving board at Blackrock, on Salthill’s famous seaside promenade has been a unique icon for the seaside village at the edge of Galway city for decades. It is the true centre point of the Wild Atlantic Way, being equi–distant from Mizzen and Malin Head. On Culture Night, 16 September 2016 we will celebrate the ‘rite of passage’ at the diving tower with a series of themed ‘dives’ to recognise the people of Galway who make great use of this wonderful attraction each day. From the hardy bunch of year–round– swimmers, to the dog–walkers, to the sit–in–the cars–newspaper– readers, to the photographers and musicians, and anyone else who cares to show up, we will showcase them all at high tide at 6pm on Friday 16 September. All are welcome.

Bring Your Togs!! (and anything else you’d like to wear).
