Cahore Lifeboat rescues five persons

By Dan Walsh at Cahore

Cahore Inshore Rescue Service was launched around 5.30 pm this evening following a call for assistance by Dublin Coastguard to a boat in difficulty with five persons on board.

CAHORE INSHORE RESCUE SERVICE takes the stricken rib to Cahore Pier this evening.

The rib suffered engine trouble and was discovered drifting on the tide off Morriscastle Strand.

The lifeboat Helmsman David Kavanagh and crew members Richie Ward and Brenda Kavanagh successfully towed the stricken vessel to safety at Cahore Pier.

All on board were safe and well and the weather conditions were calm and favourable.

Remember to call 999 or 112 if you see something or someone in the water that may be in need of assistance.
