THE RNLI YESTERDAY rescued 14 people from a passenger boat off Howth Harbour after it ran aground onto rocks.

Howth RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat responded to the incident, making its way to the scene a mile and a half away from Howth Harbour.

Another boat was assisting the 30 foot passenger vessel when the RNLI crew arrived on scene and held it in position for the lifeboat to come alongside.

The 12 tourists and two crew were transferred onto the lifeboat and the stricken passenger boat was towed back to the harbour.

No one was injured in the incident.
