Report of flare off Rush – 11th October 2014

Shortly after 21:00 this evening, the Skerries Coast Guard team were tasked to investigate a flare report off the coast of Rush, approximately 4 miles south of Skerries. A flight crew member of a passing passenger jet reported seeing one yellow flare off the Rush coast. The Skerries team carried out a shoreline search of the area with nothing further to report. No further flares were observed or reported.

No further action was required and the Skerries team returned to base.

Remember – if you spot someone in difficulty on the coast, dial 999 or 112 and ask for the COAST GUARD. Do not assume that someone else will make that call.
