About The Event
Red Bull Cliff Diving travels to Ireland for the fourth stop of the 2012 World Series on August 4…The Serpent’s Lair is one of those places you only hear stories about, said Orlando Duque, during a photoshoot ahead of the first ever Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition in 2009. “Finding this place and being able to dive there was one of the highlights of my career. Hopefully in the future we can bring a cliff diving competition to Ireland.” Orlando’s hopes will be answered during the first weekend of August, when the world’s best cliff divers come to the biggest of the three Aran Islands for the season’s halfway stage. A ferry ride from Galway on Ireland’s west coast, Inis Mor is home to the Serpent’s Lair – Poll na Peist in Gaelic – a natural formation that fishermen call a ‘blowhole’. What makes the Serpent’s Lairspecial is that it’s a near-perfect rectangle, its inexplicable shape ensconced in Gaelic legend.The Red Bull Cliff Diving on Inis Mor is an all-ticket event, with the only way to apply via an online competition which is now closed. The prize draw took place on July 16.
