Wexford is one of the newest stations in the Republic of Ireland, providing search and rescue cover for part of the south east corner of Ireland. The station operates a new IB1 D class lifeboat.
This station is classed as an Observe station. Observe stations also welcome visitors but many are in inaccessible places and best suited to maritime rescue rather than visits. However, they are situated in stunning locations so why not enjoy the local area, using the station as a starting point?
The X Factor’s Dermot O’Leary, who has his family roots in county Wexford, has pledged his support for Mayday, the RNLI’s national fundraising campaign in Ireland.
Wexford RNLI rescued five teenagers on board a small speedboat today (Sunday April 7), after it suffered engine failure and went aground on the River Slaney.
Three volunteer lifeboat crew with Wexford RNLI are behind one of this year’s biggest maritime events.
