Clifden RNLI came to the assistance of a broken down vessel in Ballyconneely Bay yesterday evening, assisting in the rescue of six people.
Volunteer crew members towed the vessel and transported the six passengers safely to shore on Ballyconneely Beach.
This incident took place shortly after 6pm when both Clifden lifeboats; Shannon Class ALB and Atlantic 85 launched in response to reports of a broken down boat.
A 14 feet vessel with multiple people on board had suffered engine failure a few kilometres from shore in Ballyconneely Bay.
The crew commenced a tow operation and the casualty vessel was towed alongside the Atlantic 85 Inshore Lifeboat and brought to Ballyconneely Beach.
