Going No Where in Killaloe

Killaloe Garda alerted Killaloe Coast Guard Unit to an Emerald Star Line Cruiser that was wedged under the first arch of the bridge under Molly's Bar. The 5 Adults and 1 child from Alacante Spain were taken off the vessel to the mooring at Ballina. Due to the very fast flow of water Killaloe Coast Guard launched another craft to assist and the injured craft was pulled off the bridge to safety and moored at Ballina. Damage to the starport side.
