I have been diving at Harbour House since I was 8 years old I am now 23. Ronnie was such a good friend to me in all my many years diving he told me when i was 8 years old getting ready for my first open water dive”fail to prepare to fail” this has always stuck with me to this day in my life. Ronnie meant so much to a lot of people and to me also. To Pat Sandra and the extended family I offer my condolences. RIP Ronnie much love from Cian McNamara, Limerick❤️
