Bundoran Lifeboat Station damaged hours after major fundraiser

Just hours after the annual Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat dinner dance ended on Friday night, a combination of high tide and heavy swell caused damage to Bundoran Lifeboat Station. Crew began to arrive at the lifeboat station at around 7.20am and discovered the damage as the seas had broken down the main front door as well as the bottom panel in the large doors, behind which the lifeboat is kept.   Full Story Here



Accidents At Sea

In the event of vessels or individuals getting into difficulties in Irish waters, the Irish Coast Guard is the service responsible for the initiation and co-ordination of search and rescue operations. The Coast Guard also co-ordinates the response to persons at risk of death or injury on the cliffs or shoreline of the Republic of Ireland.

Search and rescue operations are co-ordinated from one of the three Coast Guard rescue centres at Dublin, Valentia and Malin Head.

Depending on the gravity of the situation the Coast Guard will deploy Coast Guard helicopters, RNLI lifeboats, Coast Guard Units and Community Rescue boats. If required, additional resources will be requested from the naval service, Air Corps, vessels at sea, Garda Water Unit, air traffic services, fire brigade and Civil Defence.

What to do in the event of an emergency.

If you notice that somebody is in difficulty in the water (e.g. sea, river, lake, or cliffs), dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard. The service is free. Please do not leave it for another person to call.
