RNLI Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat Station
A busy start to our RNLI Community Life-Saving clinic with 85 lifejackets checked on Day 1. Have a look at some of the problems encountered so far in this short video. Our team will be available again tomorrow (Sunday 23rd April 2017) from 10.30am to 3pm on the Green between the Irish Lights building and the Royal Irish Yacht Club. This is a FREE service and available to anyone who uses a lifejacket for work or leisure. Please share this post.
Four weeks ago this morning, we heard the terrible news that Rescue 116 and her crew of four were lost off Co. Mayo. To the families, friends and colleagues of Dara Fitzpatrick, Mark Duffy, Paul Ormsby and Ciarán Smith we again offer our deepest condolences and assurance that the memory of their commitment and bravery will never be forgotten. May they rest in peace.

I have found the online learning system very easy to use. The course content has been very interesting and quite manageable in my busy lifestyle, and has brought lots of new ideas to improve inclusion in my service. By training as an Inclusion Coordinator I have also added to the quality of my service for families to benefit from in the future. Yvonne O'Keeffe, LINC 2016/17 I am delighted I have the opportunity to participate in LINC. It has really given me a new insight and energy to continue to provide an inclusive culture in my setting. The blended-learning process is flexible and allowed me to learn when and where it suited me, which, as a practitioner and busy parent, is essential. The lessons are well-planned and organised, and the content very relevant and up-to-date. I particularly enjoy how the theory and examples from practice are combined. Tutors and staff are extremely supportive and informative. I will carry all that I have learned through both my professional and personal life.
