#RoisinRescues - Once again the Naval Service OPV LÉ Róisín has been kept busy having been deployed in successfully locating and rescuing migrants in the Mediterranean Sea.

The operations carried out on Monday involved the saving of 371* migrants in total, following requests organised by the Italian Maritime Rescue Co-Ordination Centre. This saw three separate rubber vessels located 37 nautical miles north-west of the Libyan capital Tripoli.

The first rescue commenced at 6.50am, a total of 114 migrants are now on board and are receiving food, water and medical treatment where required.

LÉ Róisín was immediately re-tasked with the rescue of a further 115 people from a rubber vessel in the same area. All persons were on board by 9.15am.

The final operation search and rescue operation took place again north-west of Tripoli, where a further 142 migrants were taken on board.

*Figures for these operations are provisional until confirmed by the Italian authorities.
