Outside Galway City in Salthill the residents have a proud diving tradition at Blackrock Diving Tower. Quotes from the poet, Seamus Heaney, are imbedded along the promenade leading to the Tower and to jump from the high board is seen as a rite of passage. The last day of term sees school-leavers flocking to leap from this dual aspect board casting off the ties of their uniforms, the ultimate display of freedom.
