Youghal RNLI came to the assistance of four people on board a 16ft vessel at the weekend.


The lifeboat launched at 8.11pm on Saturday, 14 July, to aid a 16 foot vessel that had broken down a quarter of a mile south east of Caple Island.


 

The lifeboat Patricia Jennings, under the helm of John Griffin Junior and with crew members Mike Brooks and Eddie Hennessy established a tow upon arrival at the scene and towed the vessel along with four casualties who were wearing life jackets to Knockadoon Pier.


 

The weather at the time was calm.
