You may of heard on the news that two local fishermen are lost at sea off the coast of Skerries since last Friday. They were fishing for lobsters behind the islands and did not return. It is a small town and everyone is devastated and have been out searching the beaches and doing whatever they can to help the RNLI. There is such sadness in the town. All our thoughts are with the two families at this incredible difficult time.
The Coast Guard and Naval diving section as well as local fishermen have all been involved in the search. Donations are being sought to help with the cost of fuel to continue searching for David and Ronan. There is 'A Walk of Solidarity' in aid of the RNLI from the Bandstand at Red Island, Skerries this Wednesday 6th at 7pm to walk a 5km lap of Skerries. Please come if you can.
If you cannot make it along, and would like to help donations can be made on the Skerries RNLI or on Charity.ie. More information on the Fund For Fuel can be found at Skerries News.
