Donegal diver agrees that there should be no recreational diving in Lough Salt

A Donegal diver has agreed with the County Council that Lough Salt should not be used for recreational diving.

Donegal County Council has warned the publicity that has recently been in the media around diving for rare golf balls in the lake may attract recreational scuba divers.

But local diver Gus O'Driscoll has said that his main purpose for diving the lake is search and recovery training.

And he said he doesn't think there is a risk of scuba divers being attracted to the lake to search for the rare golf balls....
