About Us & Sports Commission

Sporting activities is administered by the Sports Commission within IWS.

Origin:

In 1948 it was decided that Ireland would follow a European initiative and create the sport of lifesaving based on the skills and equipment used in lifeguarding. Currently 168 countries are affiliated to International life saving which controls the sport worldwide.

In 1950 the President, Sean T. O’Ceallaig decided to present a very large silver trophy to Irish Water Safety for competition among the counties of Ireland and this award is still the premier award associated with our National Championships.

National championships are now divided into two sections, pool and surf and this year will include nippers, juniors, seniors and masters.
