Wicklow Lifeboat Rescues Fishing Vessel In Difficulty

Wicklow Lifeboat crew were called out yesterday after a fishing boat got into difficulty

The alarm was raised just after nine o’clock yesterday morning when the fishing vessel lost all propulsion after  a rope fouled the propeller.

The lifeboat crew located the 12 metre fishing vessel three miles north of the Codling Buoy.

A towline was quickly established and the boat with three crew was brought safely back to Wicklow Harbour
