Valentia Coast Guard have assisted in the rescue of 9 people by the Lough Derg RNLI Lifeboat  after a boat got into difficulty off the Co Tipperary Shore.

Just before 2pm this afternoon rescue services were tasked by Valentia Coast Guard, following a request for assistance from a cruiser which had run aground on rocks by Ryan’s Point.

A spokesperson for the RNLI said everyone on board was safely rescued.
