Rescue missions on the Cahore coast

By Dan Walsh

It was a busy Sunday afternoon for Courtown/Arklow Coast Guard Unit who responded to two incidents in the Cahore area.

At 3.50pm the unit went to the assistance of a speedboat with three occupants that was in danger of running aground, the boat did come ashore but was recovered with the assistance of Courtown RNLI lifeboat and Cahore Inshore Rescue Service and brought back to Cahore slipway. All occupants were fine and did not require medical assistance.


The unit had been called upon earlier at 12.50pm to assist the National Ambulance Service with a casualty that had fallen from a horse at Old Bawn beach. The casualty was stretchered to the awaiting ambulance and brought to hospital for further assessment.

Remember if you see someone in difficulty on or near the water dial 999/112 and ask for the Coast Guard.

Level five restrictions still apply, essential journeys only and stay within your 5km.
