The RNLI and the GAA are partners in the Respect the Water campaign to reduce drownings by visiting GAA clubs and attending an All-Ireland Semi Final match in Croke Park. Luckily for all the Wexford crews attending they also get to shout on their county in both the minor and senior semi finals this Sunday (28 July).

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.'
