Arklow RNLI take advantage of adverse weather conditions
The RNLI Arklow lifeboat and its volunteer crew braved the elements on Wednesday to carry out a rough weather exercise.
Mark Corcoran of Arklow lifeboat said "The exercise in the tough weather conditions drew a lot of attention with barely any room along the quay and at south beach, this is the type of weather conditions our crews train for, it was great to see so many people there and let them see what we do best.
A huge thank you to our volunteer crew who brave these elements and worse day in day out.
Our volunteer crew braved force 9 gales and breaking seas of 20ft plus
