Three people were rescued last night off the coast of Co Clare after the engine of their yacht failed.
The Kilrush-based RNLI lifeboat was called to the scene just after 9pm last night.
The yacht was towed to safety and those on board were not injured.
Meanwhile, a Dublin couple were rescued off the Kerry coast yesterday after they got into difficulty.
They were out on the water near Castlegregory when the man's dinghy capsized.
His wife, who was in a kayak, came to his assistance but she also fell into the water.
She had a mobile phone in a waterproof bag and called for help and they were brought to safety by the Fenit lifeboat.
