Junior Infants take a trip to the beach to welcome the new lifeboat.
Despite the dull weather, the three infants classes set off with their buckets and spades. They were very impressed to see the new lifeboat.They enjoyed some time on the beach playing with friends and making sandcastles. The lifeboat is the latest in a long line of search and rescue boats provided by the RNLI to Clogherhead over the past 120 years.
The boat and its launching equipment represents a multi-million euro investment at the station. It also sees the station move from a 15-knot lifeboat to a 25-knot one, cutting vital minutes off the time it takes for the lifeboat to reach a casualty. We’re hoping lots of other classes will make it to see the new life boat before the summer holidays!
