Killaloe Coast Guard Unit was tasked to remove a fridge freezer from the moorings at Ballina. The fridge was being used as a boat. A concerned member of the public called Valentia Coast Guard MRSC. The fridge was removed from the area.
During the current hot spell the Killaloe Coast Guard Unit would ask you do not swim in areas where there is no lifeguard or not designated as a safe swimming area, and that the life buoys should not be used for play; they are there to safe lives.
