An 11-year-old boy is believed to have sustained a broken leg when he and a friend fell from a sea cliff in North Co Dublin yesterday (Tuesday 23 June).
A spokesperson for Dublin Coast Guard said one boy sustained a head injury but was “walking wounded”, while the other had a suspected broken femur and was winched to the care of ambulance staff for transfer to hospital.
"They were very lucky not to be more seriously injured," the spokesperson said.
Elsewhere, the search is ongoing for a man missing on the Dingle Peninsula in Co Kerry, as RTÉ News reports.
John Cunningham (53) was last seen early on Saturday, 20 June, and locals believe he may have got into difficulty while retrieving lobster pots from an inlet on Dún Mór Head in stormy seas.
