Donal Connolly realxes back home at Golden Falls

Donal Connolly relaxes back home at Golden Falls

Not too long ago, Golden Falls WSC was the only Waterski site in the World to have the revolutionary SplashEye Jump distance measurement system in operation. As we know, there was a good reason for this as it was the creation of Golden Falls Club member Donal Connolly.  Very soon after, most of the leading Clubs here in our Irish Waterski and Wakeboard Federation territory had purchased a system. The reason was simple – it is the fastest and most cost effective measurement system available in the World – and it was “home grown”.

Thanks to local support, Donal was then able to approach a few overseas potential customers – and the positive response was immediate. When it was used at the World Waterski Championships last August in Calgary, it was obvious that the World nut had been cracked !

This afternoon we heard the great news that SplashEye has just been selected for the US national Championships. This is a huge event and the time savings alone when over 1,000 skiers are involved, will be enormous. At this stage, Donal’s fascinating invention is now also in place at 6 locations here at home, 2 in Australia, 3 in New Zealand, 4 in the UK and now 5 in the USA. By the time we publish this, these figures are probably already out of date !

Congratulations Donal – and good luck with your global marketing programme. How he finds time to also be the Technical Officer and Treasurer of our IWWF and Treasurer of Golden Falls – and run a very successful IT business at the same time is a mystery. Its probably also called 24/7 hard work !
