Skerries RNLI Lifeboat searching for missing kayak


At 20:45 yesterday evening while undertaking routine Search and Rescue training,

Skerries RNLI were tasked by Dublin Coastguard to investigate reports of a missing kayak

last seen in the area of the beachfront in Skerries.

The lifeboat made its way towards shore to begin a search, and within 4 minutes had located the missing kayak.

There were 2 persons on board and it was quickly established they were in no danger.

However, they made their way ashore to reassure concerned family members who had raised the alarm.

The lifeboat then returned to their training exercise before returning to base at approximately 21.30.
