Tributes have been paid to a diver who lost his life off the coast of Donegal.
Michal Marek was killed while taking part in an open-water dive in Malin Head on Sunday.
Originally from Poland, the 36-year-old had been living in Ireland for several years with his sister, Agnieszka.
He was based in Galway and was described as an ‘avid explorer’ by the Irish Cave Rescue Organisation.
He was among a team which discovered the longest marine cave in Ireland in Clare.
According to the ICRO Michal filled his life with underground and underwater adventures as a caver and cave diver and recorded the Irish cave-dive depth record during a venture in Pollatoomery — a cave in Mayo.
Following his tragic death, the ICRO acknowledged his contribution to the organisation as a core-team member and stated that he ‘will be a huge loss’ and ‘will be missed by all who worked with him’.Tags:
