The volunteer crew has responded to 20 calls to date in 2022.

Over 50 people have been assisted by the Lough Ree RNLI in the first half of this year.

On Saturday three people were brought to safety after their 28 foot sailing boat got into difficulty close to Beam Island.

The local RNLI group celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and has responded to almost 600 call outs helping more than 1,300 people.
