Des Davitt Retires From Wicklow R.N.L.I. After 27 Years

One of the key men behind  The R.N.L.I. in Wicklow town is retiring from the service after 27 years of volunteering work.

Des Davitt has been the Operations Manager at Wicklow lifeboat Station since 2004.

He  also served as chairman of the appeal committee which raised funds for the provision of a new inshore lifeboat and an extension to the boathouse to house the new lifeboat in 1996.

Des has ensured Wicklow Lifeboat Station remained operational at all times during the Covid-19 restrictions. Wicklow RNLI Press Officer, Tommy Dover  says unfortunately, because of the current restrictions,  the crew will have to wait before they meet up to give Des  a proper send off in the near future.
