Two people have been rescued from a speedboat in Galway tonight.
The 25 foot powerboat went aground off Blackrock in Salthill at about 6.40pm as the tide was going out.
The father and son, who did not suffer any injuries, were rescued by members of the RNLI and are said to be new to boating.
The lifeboat will relaunch at 1am to refloat the vessel at high tide.
A spokesperson says the incident was a lesson for the two men involved.
