Last Sunday while on exercise the Irish Coast Guard boat “Sean Dunne” from Howth station was tasked by the Coast Guard operations centre to assist a craft near Dun Laoghaire harbour.
The boat was towed into Dun Laoghaire and a crew member from the casualty vessel brought aboard the Coast Guard boat.
Call 112 and Ask For Coast Guard
If you think somebody is in difficulty on the coast / cliff / beach / sea then dial 112 and ask for COAST GUARD.
Our team of 25 volunteers based at Howth Harbour provide 24/7 on-call coverage and have specialised training to respond to local coastal emergencies in their own locality.
