Father And Son Rescued In Wexford After Inflatable Drifts Out To Sea

A father and son were rescued after they got into difficulty at sea after the inflatable that they were using drifted out to sea…

The alarm was raised by the child’s mother after the two started to drift out to sea on 08 September.

The pair were in difficulty just off Cahore Pier in County Wexford.

Cahore Inshore Rescue were tasked by the Dublin Coastgard by pager alert.

The Cahore Inshore Rescue team crew members was led by Donal McGrath at the helm and his crew Brenda Kavanagh and Sean Doyle..

The Cahore Inshore Rescue team were helped by the Courtown Coustguard unit and have thanked them for their assistance.

Cahore is a popular place in Wexford and is usually crowded with swimmers, family-goers, crab-fishers, and people jumping off the pier into the water.

Thankfully, the two people were rescued after the pair managed to tie the inflatable onto a buoy. They were then transferred safely back to shore with no injuries reported.

This serves as a gentle reminder to be extra-cautious of the tides, while it also proves once again the importance of our coast guards.
