35 people rescued following bad weather at Lough Derg rowing event
Updated: 22:40, Friday, 21 June 2013

A rescue operation was launched when bad weather disrupted the rowing event
35 people have been rescued from Lough Derg after bad weather disrupted an international rowing event.
18 vessels with five people on each were racing on the Shannon from Dromineer to Killaloe.
However the boats were dispersed by heavy rain and wind and several were forced off course.
The Coast Guard, RNLI, Gardaí, National Ambulance Service, Fire Services, Civil Defence, ShannonDoc, and Limerick Marine Search and Rescue were all involved in the operation.
Three ambulances were dispatched to the scene and three emergency response cars.
A further three emergency ambulances were dispatched but stood down when it was determined they were not required.
35 people were rescued from the water by the water rescue agencies.
15 rowers suffering from hypothermia were treated at the scene by paramedics and three local general practitioners.
No one required admittance to hospital.
There had been concerns about one of the participating boats which was subsequently located safely ashore along with its oars and equipment.
Dr, Cathal O'Donnell, Chief Medical Officer for the National Ambulance Service said, "This was an extremely successful inter-agency operation and a job well done by all involved.
“All of the rowers were brought to safety and no one is seriously hurt."
We are the willing, led by the unknowning, doing the impossible, for the ungrateful.

Jesus but wouldn't you hate to have to co-ordinate all that. There would be a few agencies there with a few individuals who might have a bit of a clash of egos.....

Excellent work from all concerned. Makes a mockery of The KCS fire/rescue no response policy to water rescue.44
We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

It was a big operation allright but a lot of confusion. Only one boat sank and all the crew were stayed with it . All the rest of the boats made it to shore and no one was actually declared missing . One big group thought they were marooned on an island but they were actually on a spit of land.
Some amount of resources mobilised though....
