Wicklow Lifeboat Crew On Hand To Rescue Pet

The Wicklow RNLI inshore Lifeboat is being praised for coming to the assistance of a pet owner, who’s dog “Otis” went missing after chasing seagulls at the cliff edge at Wicklow head, late this afternoon.

The Wicklow RNLI inshore Lifeboat is being praised for coming to the assistance of a pet owner, who’s dog “Otis” went missing after chasing seagulls at the cliff edge at Wicklow head, late yesterday afternoon.

The crew launched at around twenty to five and began a sweep of caves and the shoreline at a location known as the Pond, near Wicklow Head lighthouse. 
The dog could be heard barking from a cave and crew member John Stapleton was put ashore and with some persuading, the dog climbed back up the cliff and to his grateful owner.
