Arklow RNLI launched earlier today to assist a local vessel. The vessel was towed safely back to Arklow and all came ashore safely. Full Release to Follow
ARKLOW RNLI launch to assist Stricken sailing vessel Arklow Lifeboat was launched this evening (October 17) following a call for assistance from the crew of a U.K. registered sailing vessel which had suffered mechanical failure. Our volunteer crew was tasked to the scene approximately 12 miles South of Arklow. Arklow Lifeboat proceeded to the reported position of the casualty sailing boat.. Once the yacht had been located, a decision was made to put a lifeboat crew member aboard the 10metre sailing vessel to assist the crew of two. Following this a tow line was established and the vessel and her crew were towed safely back to Arklow where all came ashore safely. Following the incident, Mark Corcoran Arklow RNLI Volunteer Press Officer said, “Thanks to all of our volunteers who are always ready 24/7 365 to drop what they are doing in their own lives to go to sea to assist others” Ends All Photos Arklow RNLI RNLI media contacts For more information please contact Mark Corcoran, Arklow RNLI Volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer on 0868260439, email email@example.com or contact Nuala McAloon RNLI Press Officer on 087 648 3547 or email Nuala_McAloon@rnli.org.uk or Niamh Stephenson RNLI Public Relations Manager on 087 1254 124 or 01 8900 460 email Niamh_Stephenson@rnli.org.uk RNLI online For more information on the RNLI please visit www.rnli.ie News releases and other media resources, including RSS feeds, downloadable photos and video, are available at the RNLI Press Centre www.rnli.ie/press Key facts about the RNLI The RNLI charity saves lives at sea.

Here in Aughrim the half time score is: Aughrim 1-5 Arklow Rocks 2-0
Arklow United FC
United pick up another 3 points: Match report Another tough away fixture for Arklow United B away to Aughrim. With a heavy pitch under foot Arklow got off to a good start with Mark Nolan whipping in two or three good early low crosses and Luke Walker hit the goal keeper on all occasions. With Arklow playing 3 players in the middle, aughrim really had no answer and kept pumping the ball long down the middle and Uniteds two centre halfs on the day Jason Carrey and Nathan Carr clearing everything up with ease . 5 mins from half time, again another low ball in from the right Keith Walsh with his second attempt taps the ball in passed the home keeper. No changes at half time for either side Aughrim started slightly the better and had a couple of balls put into the box that caused a bit of panic. But eventually Arklow got there second with another tap in from 5yards out with Luke Walker making it two nill on 70mins . With two subs being made just after that bringing on Alan Earls on the left wing another whipped ball in low and hard for Luke Walker for another tap in. Utd never looked like conceding a goal until a free kick given away about 30yards out and an Aughrim player thundered the ball into the top right corner off the goal with Dean Hayes wondering what just happened there. All in all a good day at the office again for Arklow United second team who with 3 wins on the bounce are sitting pretty on top of the league with 13 points.
