#Rescue - BreakingNews.ie reports on the rescue of a woman whose kayak capsized in Liscannor Bay this morning (Sunday 24 July).

The woman – one of a group of four – was unable to get back into her kayak, prompting her fellow paddlers to raise the alarm.

Emergency services were notified but the woman was shortly after rescued by the crew of a nearby fishing vessel and given the all clear back at Liscannor Harbour.

The incident came just says after a father and son were rescued from Galway Bay further north after their kayak capsized, as previously reported on Afloat.ie.

#Diving - A group of scuba diving enthusiasts had a lucky escape yesterday (Saturday 2 August) after their boat drifted towards rocks off the Clare coast, as Independent.ie reports.

The six divers and the boat's skipper had been on an expedition in Liscannor Bay less than half a kilometre from the shore when the boat suffered engine failure.

The group was left adrift as weather conditions deteriorated, but the Irish Coast Guard's Doolin unit responded swiftly, along with the Shannon-based coastguard helicopter Rescue 115.
