FOUR PEOPLE AND 2 dogs were rescued from a boat in the waters off Cork this afternoon after the vessel’s engine failed.

The motor cruiser was near Horse Island off the west Cork coast when the engine failure happened. The Baltimore RNLI said the alarm was raised at around 3.05pm.

“They did everything right, they were wearing life jackets and anchored promptly to secure their safety when her [the boat's] engines failed,” said John Kearney who led the Baltimore RNLI lifeboat which rescued the party.

The lifeboat found the small stricken vessel anchored between two small islands. The two men, two women and two dogs on board were not hurt and the vessel was towed back to shore by the lifeboat.
