The event was initially conceived in Wales in 2012 with each participating nation taking turns to host the event with 2017 seeing it move to Scotland to host.

“A total of 59 divers participated across 32 events over the weekend. It’s great to see people from Scotland, Ireland and Wales visiting Bangor Aquatics and Healthy Lifestyles Centre. The fact that the Centre is hosting such an event is testament to the excellent facilities i thas to offer.”

This year’s event was won by Scotland who will host the 2017 Celtic Novice diving event.
