Skerries RNLI received a generous donation of €1,000 from Fingal Tri triathlon club last Thursday (19 June) from the holding of their first Skerries triathlon on the previous Saturday( 14 June).

 

Skerries RNLI would like to say a huge thank you and well done to everyone at Fingal Tri and to congratulate all the athletes on completing the triathlon.

 

Speaking about the event, Gerry Canning, Volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer said “We launched the boat on exercise and we stood by to observe the swim. It’s always great to come out and support our fundraisers in any way we can. The event was well run and it was great to see so many safety precautions in place for the swim.”

 

Nigel Roy from Fingal Tri added, “It was a great comfort to all the athletes to have the lifeboat present on the day”
