THREE PEOPLE WERE rescued from a boat that was in danger of hitting rocks at Glandore Harbour yesterday.

Toe Head Coast Guard was tasked by Valentia MRSC yesterday evening at 6.31pm to go to the aid of a 17ft boat with three persons on board.

The boat had suffered mechanical failure and was in danger of going onto rocks at Adams island in Glandore Harbour.

The Delta rescue boat was launched immediately with a crew of four and proceeded to Glandore Harbour.

They located the casualty vessel, and found it had its anchor set in just two metres of water off Sheila’s point.

They attached tow lines to the boat, and the Toe Head rescue boat towed it back to Union Hall pier.

Toe Head was also assisted on shore by colleagues from Glandore Coast Guard unit.
