Darragh Coffey will be among a group of hardy souls who are set to swim unaided from Lambay Island to Rush Harbour - all for a good cause.
The group will be covering the 4.5km of open sea in aid of kidney research at Beaumont Hospital.
Darragh and his colleages have already received a number of donations via bank transfer and the old reliable sponsorship card.
Anyone else interested in making a contribution can contact Darrah at [email protected] for details.

The crew of Howth RNLI rescued a woman from drowning off the coast of Portrane this week (Monday).

The Lifeboat crew had been out on exercise when they spotted the 31 year old female struggling above the waves. She had sunk two feet beneath the water when the crew reached her. They managed to catch her clothing and pull her aboard the All Weather Lifeboat (ALB), immediately administering first aid.

The RNLI crew then took the lady safely to Howth harbour, as she was thought to be too distressed to be lifted by the Coastguard helicopter which was also in attendance. An awaiting ambulance brought her to Beaumont Hospital to recover.

Howth RNLI voluntary crewmember Dave Howard says:

"All the crew were relieved that this rescue had a positive ending, the lady would certainly have died had we not already been at sea on exercise. She was very lucky"
