The volunteer lifeboat crew were paged at 12:10 pm following an initial report from the Irish Coast Guard that two anglers had been cut off by the tide just north of Whiterock.
The inshore lifeboat was launched immediately and made its way to the scene arriving at 12:25 pm. Dun Laoghaire Coast Guard shore unit also attended.
Weather conditions at the time were described as good with a calm sea, light wind, and good visibility.
On arrival just north of Whiterock, the lifeboat crew assessed the situation and noted that the anglers were at risk of becoming stranded by the incoming tide. The lifeboat crew advised the anglers to relocate, they agreed and were taken onboard and relocated to Killiney beach.
Speaking following the call out, Liam Mullan, Dun Laoghaire RNLI Lifeboat Press Officer said: ‘ Sea conditions were good today, however, it is very easy to be caught off guard, therefore it is important to check the weather forecast and tide times. This is of particular importance for shore anglers in order to reduce the risk of being swept away or cut off by the tide. It is important to remember that if you get into difficulty, dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard.’
