The Lough Derg RNLI lifeboat crew dealt with back-to-back call outs on the lake yesterday. 

They were called to assist 7 people on board a 45 foot cruiser aground at Navigation Mark G on the Tipp shote shortly after 1.30pm

En-route to this vessel they were informed of a 30 foot cruiser with 3 people on board which had gone aground at Navigation Mark E off the Goat Road.

Both vessels were safely re-floated with the crews safe and well.
