Enthusiastic Courtown member Peter Browne has been ‘recognised for extraordinary service’ and received his 20-year medal for outstanding achievement to the RNLI.
The presentation was made by Sam Kennedy, Lifeboat Operations Manager, following last night’s training session with adherence to Covid-19 guidelines and protocol.
Having become involved as a fresh faced 16 years old Peter has been a Helm on the crew for almost 16 years.
Peter is remembered as one of the crew to feature on Saving Lives at Sea when they featured Courtown RNLI’s rescue of a young girl who came off her jet ski.
“We at Courtown RNLI would like to thank Peter for his dedicated service over the past 20 years, and we hope to properly honour all those who have received medals when restrictions are lifted,” concluded Mr Kennedy.
