Gardaí in Carrick-on-Shannon are appealing to members of the public to always wear a lifejacket when on or near the water.

"The simple act of wearing a well maintained life jacket can dramatically increase a person’s chance of survival should they be unlucky enough to enter the water unexpectedly," noted a spokesperson.

Gardaí are also appealing to the Public to immediately report any missing or damaged lifesaving ring buoys to your local authority.
