Portadown Pikers Angling Club lay wreaths in memory of David and Daryl
The Portadown Pikers Angling Club laid wreaths at the Coosan Point Memorial, on Saturday 23 March, in memory of their colleagues David Warnock and Daryl Burke, who drowned in Lough Ree in a tragic incident in March 2014.
The group, which included John Trimble who survived the tragic incident, were joined by a group from Lough Ree Lifeboat for the wreath laying ceremony and some refreshments at the Lifeboat Station.
Pikers Chairman Noel Quinn later made a generous donation to Lough Ree RNLI Lifeboat, before the group departed to Lanesborough where they spent the weekend fishing.
Brian and Hayley Warnock also laid wreaths in memory of their son David Warnock.
Key facts about the RNLI

The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
