A rescue operation took place in what must have been record time this evening 19 August. Bleepers went off at 18:19 after a 7 metre motor Boat with 2 adults on board went aground on rocks opposite the station house. The boat had suffered engine failure and had drifted onto rocks in flat calm weather conditions. The inshore lifeboat launched at 18:27 passed a tow to the motor boat at 18:28, put the boat back on her own mooring at 18:32 and then returned to station at 18:42. On board the ILB were Helm Kieran Collins with crew Jerry Smith & Diarmuid Collins.
