The Killaloe unit of the Irish Coast Guard assisted the crew of a powerboat that suffered engine problems on Lough Derg today.
The boat was about 3 kilometres north of Killaloe when the two person crew reported their problem.
Coast Guard volunteers from Killaloe mobilised by land and water. The unit’s RIB located the casualty and took it under tow.
The powerboat was taken to Bunglasha on the Clare shore where Coast Guard mobile unit was standing by to help safely secure the casualty vessel.
It was the Killaloe volunteer team’s 48th call of the year.
