Object in the Water at O'Briens Bridge

Killaloe Coast Guard were tasked by Killaloe Garda to inspect an object floating just South of Parteen weir Co Clare. A dClass rescue rib was launched at Mountpilier with a crew of four while a walking team proceeded on foot on the western bank. The object was found to be a wheelie bin which could have been a hazard to navigation in the area. The bin was removed to Mountpilier.
