Well done to Dún Laoghaire Lifeboat for another successful rescue last Sunday.
Three of the Dún Laoghaire lifeboat crew, which is made up entirely of volunteers, used the in-shore lifeboat (that is the rigid inflatable boat, pictured) to respond to was requested to a call that a swimmer was in difficulty near the Forty Foot, in Sandycove, last Sunday morning (18 November) shortly after 11am.
The RNLI reports that weather conditions were “moderate” but that there was a heavy swell in the area, and that the lifeboat quickly found the swimmer with the assistance of the public on-shore. The swimmer was recovered from the water and was safely back on dry land by 11.30am.
