Youghal RNLI lifeboat rescues father and son


THE YOUGHAL RNLI LIFEBOAT was launched on Sunday 11th September at 2pm to a report of a small dingy that was attempting to row to a moored boat off the Ferry Point, Youghal, with two casualties on board. It was being swept up the Youghal harbour by strong winds and the filling tide and was unable to return to shore.

The Youghal Lifeboat under the helm of David Slattery along with crew members Martin Morris and Ray Kelly were quickly on the scene and towed the vessel along with its two causalities, a father and son who were both wearing life jackets safely to shore.  The weather was blowing a force 4 south easterly winds.
