The Lough Derg RNLI Lifeboat has come to the assistance of two people on who had become stranded in severe weather conditions.

The crew were alerted to to the situation just after five o’clock last evening, and launched a short time later in Force 7 gusty winds.

They arrived at the scene, near the Corakeens Islands, to find that a vessel in the area had already started to tow the stricken motor boat, which in turn was being driven onto rocks by the entrance to Dromaan Harbour on the County Clare shore.


The RNLI volunteers took the two people onto their lifeboat, as the motor vessel was taken off of the rocks, and both were then brought to safety.
