#RNLI – A Donaghadee RNLI Coxswain and a Kilmore Quay Mechanic were involved in Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant at the weekend.
Donaghadee RNLI Coxswain Philip McNamara from County Down and Kilmore Quay Mechanic Brian Kehoe from County Wexford were aboard the charity's newest all-weather lifeboat at Sunday's Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant in London. Philip and Brian were joined at the event by seven other RNLI lifeboat crew from other divisions.
The charity's latest £2.7M (€3M) Tamar-class lifeboat Diamond Jubilee on which Philip and Brian were aboard, will be stationed at Eastbourne Lifeboat Station. The lifeboat is expected to be placed on station in Eastbourne and ready for active service towards the end of June.
