Fishermen rescued off Cork coast in freezing temperatures and high winds

Three men have been rescued off the East Cork coast after their boat was in danger of washing up against rocks. The 11m boat they were on had been disabled 2.5 miles off Power Head at around 2am on Tuesday. Temperatures were freezing and a bitter north-easterly wind — force 5-6 — created a two-metre swell. Ballycotton RNLI received the request to launch at 2.15am and was told there was a risk of the vessel being washed up against the rocks. The crew boarded The Austin Lidbury all-weather lifeboat and headed west towards Power Head. more, >>click to read<< 07:46
