Wexford RNLI crew make video for the GAA All-Ireland hurling semi final
Wexford RNLI crew made a special video for the GAA All-Ireland hurnling semi final which takes place on Sunday 28 July in which Wexford take on Tipperary and the RNLI will also be there to promote the Respect the Water message in Croke Park.
The Wexford crew, with special permission from the Wild Swans, made a special video taking in the Nicky Rackard statue in Wexford town and the famous Dancing at the Crossroads, one of Wexford's favourite supporters songs. Also in the video were the Minor and Senior Leinster trophies, which were won by Wexford this year.
Lorraine Galvin of Wexford RNLI said: 'We are also doubly excited to visit Croke Park on Sunday, representing both the RNLI and Wexford. With five lifeboat stations in County Wexford, crews from Courtown, Wexford, Rosslare, Kilmore Quay and Fethard will all be there, along with many other crews in full kit, we hope to share the Respect the Water message to reduce drownings as well as shout for our County.'
