Six People Rescued by Dun Laoghaire RNLI

Six people have been rescued by the Dun Laoghaire RNLI lifeboat in two separate incidents this afternoon.

In the first incident, a yacht with one person onboard suffered steering failure two miles north of Greystones just before one o'clock.

Shortly after 2pm, a yacht with five people on board experienced engine failure near the entrance to Dun Laoghaire harbour.

A spokesperson for the RNLI says they're very happy to have returned everyone safely to shore today.
