Arklow RNLI assists two fishermen after boat gets into difficulty
Arklow RNLI?s volunteer lifeboat crew were alerted by pager at 6.44pm on Sunday evening (14 June). This is the second callout for Arklow RNLI this week. The lifeboat Ger Tigchelaar was launched within minutes to a call for help from a local fishing vessel. The vessel had suffered machinery failure and was adrift outside the mouth of Arklow Harbour. Lifeboat crew consisting of Coxswain Ned Dillon, Station Mechanic Michael Fitzgerald, John Bermingham, Scotty Heaney, Keith Forde & Eddie McElheron., proceeded to scene and after locating the casualty vessel, established a tow line and proceeded back in to Arklow with the vessel alongside. All crew members aboard the casualty remained aboard during the service and all hands came ashore safely. Photo: RNLI/Arklow
