Union Hall RNLI's lifeboat station is to be formally established
Union Hall RNLI's lifeboat station is to be formally established following a successful trial.
It's the RNLI's 45th lifeboat station in Ireland and was officially put on service at the village in 2014 for a trial period.
Since then, the station has operated Maritime Nation, a B class Atlantic 75 lifeboat, from temporary station facilities, launching from a slipway adjacent to Keelbeg pier.
Work will now commence towards establishing a permanent building and facilities for the station.
Since going on service, Union Hall RNLI has launched 26 times, saved one life and rescued 42 people.
