#Rescue - Irish Coast Guard units from Tramore and Bonmahon were dispatched earlier this week after two people went over a cliff at Dungarvan’s GolfCoast golf links.

The local coastguard helicopter Rescue 117 also joined the operation on Wednesday (2 August) for the recovery of the casualties, winching them to safety and into the care of paramedics after the area was made accessible by local fire crews.

The two casualties were taken to University Hospital Waterford for further treatment, though its reported they sustained only minor injuries.
