The cruiser with one person on board had been on route from Killaloe to Dromineer when it suffered engine failure, it had been blown close to the shore before the anchor dug in. The vessel was brought under tow to Derg Marina where it was moored at 18.20.
Remember; if you spot someone in trouble on the water, on the cliffs or coast, even if you just 'think' they may be in trouble, dial 112 or 999 and ask for the Coast Guard.
