Swimmer Rescued Off Greystones In Rough Weather

Irish Water Safety and Coastguard services are urging people to exercise care when taking to the water, after a swimmer had to be rescued off the coast of north Wicklow yesterday.

At around 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon, members of the public raised the alarm after seeing a woman get into difficulty while swimming in rough conditions at the south beach in Greystones.

The woman was winched to safety by an Irish Coast Guard helicopter  and brought back safely to shore, where an ambulance was waiting.
