Life & Death Under the Irish Cliffs

“Fractured skull, burst eardrums, broken nose, lacerations to my head and face from my fins, dislocated shoulder, broken ribs, intercostal muscles torn, broken fingers, dislocated knee, broken back….” Thus reads the impressive catalogue of injuries that paramedic, fireman and lifeguard Peter Conroy has sustained surfing Ireland’s biggest and most dangerous waves. But this list would probably be a lot longer — or, even worse, a lot shorter — were it not for the sterling and frequently life-saving work carried out the the Irish Tow Surf Rescue Club, established by Conroy ten years ago.
