Kerry anglers are being reminded to follow safety guidelines and be aware of potential dangers.

According to the latest figures from Water Safety Ireland, a total of 105 people drowned in Irish waters last year.

Inland Fisheries Ireland says while wearing a life jacket on a boat is mandatory, anglers are being advised to wear them when on or near water.

It is also asking anglers to check weather forecasts, tide times, have suitable clothing and not to take any risks.
