Up to 35 lives were saved by lifeboat crews as they rescued more than 1,200 people in Irish waters last year, from figures released by the RNLI.

Howth in Co Dublin was the busiest RNLI station, followed by the volunteers in Clifden, Co Galway.

The most common type of incident was mechanical failure on boats but 66 launches were in response to someone at risk of drowning with 10 RNLI stations recording calls to help animals and pets in distress. Among the unusual call outs were the rescue of a herd of cows from the sea near Kinsale, Co Cork, including one animal which was stuck in a cave.
