By Dan Walsh

Sam Kennedy has stepped down as Lifeboat Operations Manager with Courtown RNLI after 37 years of dedicated service and friends and colleagues recently gathered in the lifeboat station to record their appreciation.

Sam became a search and rescue volunteer in the mid-1980s with the Courtown Inshore Rescue crew and continued as an RNLI member when it was established at Courtown Harbour in 1990.

He became Honorary Secretary in 2003 and continued as Lifeboat Operations Manager for 20 years until his recent well-deserved retirement.

Sam Kennedy’s replacement as Lifeboat Operations Manager with Courtown RNLI is Mark Chambers and everyone is wishing him well in his promotional role.
