Dunmore Lifeboat Damaged

Sadly the Dunmore East Lifeboat was damaged last night as a trawler after being towed in yesterday with gearbox trouble was repaired and seemingly she was started last night about 12 o’clock and still in gear , ploughed into the pontoon and pilot boat and bending the piles on the pontoon , very serious damage to the lifeboat.  No one was injured in the accident.
We’ve heard that there is a replacement boat on the way from Cork already this morning so as to maintain this vital service!
