#RNLI - Following the dramatic rescue of a dog who fell from sea cliffs on Howth Head at the weekend comes news from Skerries of another pooch stranded off the shore by high tide yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 12 January).

Mollie, a border collie cross, had been missing since the previous evening after becoming frightened and running away. She was finally spotted yesterday morning in the Red Island area in Skerries.

However by the time her owners had located her, she had made her way onto the rocks behind the lifeboat station and had been cut off by the rising tide.

At the time, a combination of the location and conditions meant that launching the lifeboat and attempting a rescue from the sea was not an option.

But Skerries RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew David Knight and AJ Hughes were able to wade safely out to the rocks from the shoreline wearing their personal protection equipment and using a safety line.

Once recovered, Mollie was handed over to her grateful owners at the shoreline who took her straight to the vet for a full check-up.
