Men in particular, who are taking to the waters in Clare this weekend are being advised not to let bravado get in the way of safety.

Around five people a fortnight die from drowning with Bank Holiday weekends in particular highlighted as a dangerous period.

Men account for 80 percent of all drownings, and Irish Water Safety is urging everyone to ensure they’re wearing a life vest no matter how experienced on the water they are.


John Leech of IWS is urging everyone to bear safety protocols in mind when heading to water this weekend, but men in particular.
