#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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie 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.

Afloat.ie 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.
