River Patrols at Slane concert 2011

Once again, members of the Skerries Coast Guard team assisted with the Boyne river boat patrols at the Kings of Leon Slane Castle concert. Our flank station of Drogheda Coast Guard oversee these river patrols and they are an essential safety component of the Slane Castle event. This year, members of both Howth Coast Guard and Greenore Coast Guard also took part in the patrols.

The Coast Guard were also assisted by the Garda dive unit, Civil Defence and Portmarnock dive club. Overall, the river patrols passed off without incident. Further photos of the event are available in our online photo gallery.
