Concern for Kayaker
The Irish Coast Guard emergency operations centre this morning, shortly before 11am, received a call about a kayaker off Howth. A concerned member of the public had noted that the kayaker was on the water with no Life Jacket and rang the Coast Guard on 999. The kayaker had proceeded around the back of Ireland’s eye off Howth and out of visibility from the caller on land. While the kayaker didn’t appear in difficulty there were concerned for their safety.
