Union Chandlery Host RNLI Pop–Up Shop This Saturday

30th November 2016
Union Chandlery Host RNLI Pop–Up Shop This Saturday

This Saturday, Union Chandlery in Cork city will be hosting an RNLI pop–up shop where 100% of the proceeds will be going directly to the RNLI.

These funds are vital for keeping RNLI boats on the water and providing the crews with the lifesaving equipment they use.

The RNLI do not charge for their services and their crews give their time free of charge to save lives at sea. By buying gifts and cards from the RNLI, you are helping to ensure their invaluable service continues to benefit the seafarers of Cork and the rest of Ireland.

Cork has eight lifeboat stations along its coast from Youghal to Castletownbere.

Drop in to Union Chandlery, Penrose Quay on December 3rd to show your support for the amazing work the RNLI do in Cork and further afield. See poster below.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
