The Aran Islands RNLI lifeboat crew were called out on Sunday night for a woman in need of medical attention on the mainland.
The all weather lifeboat launched just after 8pm on Sunday night for a medical evacuation of a woman from Inis Mór.
Weather conditions at the time of launching were good with calm seas and a light westerly breeze blowing, with fair visibility.
The lady was transferred to the lifeboat, and from there, directly to Ros a Mhíl harbour, and a waiting ambulance.
Speaking after the call out, Aran Islands RNLI Coxswain Tommy Dirrane said “There was a great response time from the crew which ensured we could promptly get the patient on her way to the medical attention she needed.”
He went on to wish the woman a speedy recovery, and to issue a reminder for beach goers not to swim alone, as well as to wear a lifejacket if going out to sea.
