Howth Rescue Mission Represents the Best of Us

I have commended the heroics of Howth RNLI, following a rescue mission carried out off Howth on Monday, March 18th.

The heroism of the volunteers of the Howth RNLI, symbolize the best of our society.

The rescue team sprang into action following reports of a sailing vessel in distress on the Howth peninsula. Their willingness to put themselves in harm’s way to protect members of the public is truly inspirational.

Not only did the rescuers return the two passengers of the vessel safely to land but also managed to prevent the vessel from sinking, due to their speed and efficiency.

This also serves as a reminder for anyone at sea to make sure they have the proper communications equipment with them at all times. On this occasion the two passengers had the correct equipment and were able to raise the alarm upon getting into difficulty.

I am sure I am joined in gratitude by everyone in the Howth community and beyond, for their continuing efforts to keep us safe at sea.
