« BackInvestigation into drowning of coastguard volunteer

Irish-coastguard-300x238Investigators are hoping to discover exactly what happened to Catriona Lucas who drowned off the coast of Clare yesterday.

The 41-year-old is the first ever Irish coastguard volunteer to die during a rescue – it’s thought a freak wave hit her boat.

Two other crew members were airlifted to safety, and are recovering in hospital today.
