Skerries RNLI launched on Monday afternoon (06 June) following reports to Dublin Coast Guard of a partially submerged object off Bremore point in Balbriggan

The lifeboat launched shortly before 1pm with volunteer Conor Walsh at the Helm and crewed by Simon Shiels, Steven Johnson and Stephen Crowley.
Once on scene, the lifeboat crew quickly located the object, which was a thirty foot pole tangled with some plastic barriers. As the objects were a danger to other sea users, Dublin Coast Guard asked the lifeboat crew to recover the objects from the water.
The crew pulled the debris onto the lifeboat and returned them to the shore at the station for collection by Fingal County Council.
Speaking after the call out, Gerry Canning, Lifeboat Press Officer for Skerries RNLI said: ‘Every call out is different and things are not always as they appear from the shore. However, our volunteers are ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year’
