Storm-related incidents around the country for our Coast Guard teams,

Dun Laoghaire Coast Guard was tasked at lunchtime yesterday to extract a member of the public that had walked out the South Bull wall during stormy conditions. The safest option was the casualty to take shelter until the tide dropped.

Crosshaven Coast Guard has been tasked several times starting last night with a person who fallen overboard from a yacht and had been in the water for almost an hour. Luckily, their cries for help were heard by a passerby. The crew then refloated the vessel that had gone aground.

Always wear a life jacket and have a way of signalling for help!

Stay Afloat, Stay in Contact!

Crosshaven was tasked again this morning to recover a yacht after it broke its mooring near Drake's pool. A tow was quickly established and casualty vessel brought to safety to an RCYC mooring.

The Coast Guard strongly advises the public to stay away from exposed beaches, cliffs and piers, harbour walls and promenades along the coast during storm conditions.

Remember to Stay Back, Stay High and Stay Dry.

If you see someone in difficulty in the sea, or on the shore dial 999/112 and ask for the Coast Guard.
