Skerries RNLI volunteers sprang into action following reports to Dublin Coast Guard of a partially submerged object off Bremore point in Balbriggan.

The lifeboat launched shortly before 1pm on Monday afternoon with volunteer Conor Walsh at the Helm and crewed by Simon Shiels, Steven Johnson and Stephen Crowley.

Once on scene, the lifeboat crew quickly located the object, which was a 30ft pole tangled with some plastic barriers. As the objects were a danger to other sea users, Dublin Coast Guard asked the lifeboat crew to recover the objects from the water.

The crew pulled the debris onto the lifeboat and returned them to the shore at the station for collection by Fingal County Council.

Gerry Canning, spokesman for Skerries RNLI said: ‘Every call out is different and things are not always as they appear from the shore. However, our volunteers are ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year’
