“IWAI welcomes decision to establish RNLI Station on Lough Ree”

Announcement by RNLI to establish inland rescue station on Lough Ree

Greg Whelan, President of the IWAI warmly welcomed the decision by the RNLI to establish a Lifeboat Station on Lough Ree. This has been the result of a long campaign by the Athlone Branch of the IWAI and the national executive of the IWAI to seek formal lifeboat rescue services on Lough Ree. The IWAI through its Athlone Branch and the annual Shannon Rally have been active campaigners and fund raisers for the RNLI for a number of years.

The decision by the RNLI provides for the first time a dedicated and resourced professional rescue service to the many users including boat owners, hirers and the significant number of anglers who use the Lough Ree on a regular basis.
