Four fishermen on a Cork registered boat, the AZTEC, were rescued after their fishing vessel sank in the Barrow Estuary off the Duncannon coast today.
The fishing boat was paired with a Wexford fishing vessel, drawing on the same net, when it suddenly got into difficulty and began sinking.
The four fishermen were taken safely to shore by the Wexford vessel and no injuries were reported.
Dunmore East Lifeboat was launched around mid-day and was quickly on the scene.
