Killaloe Coast Guard Unit called out on Christmas day to search for a drifting vessel on the Tipperary shore of Lough Derg.
Unit members were not long home from the annual Christmas Day Swim when at 4.15pm a report of a vessel drifting South of Deer Rock was reported to Coast Guard MRSC in Valentia.
A boat crew were tasked to carry out a shoreline search from Killaloe to Silly Islands on the Tipperary shore, while a land crew travelled by road to search any area of access to Lough Derg..
After an extensive search for almost two hours on the Tipperary and Clare shore of the lake the unit were stood down with nothing found.
Faulse alarm with good intention.
At 19:30hrs unit members were back on station and standing down.
We would like to thank all our unit members who responded on Christmas day.
Callout 58/ 2018.
