National Water Safety Week 17th-23rd June 2024

National Water Safety Week:

National Water Safety Awareness Week takes place from 17th – 23rd June 2024. During this week Water Safety Ireland will communicate water safety messages to the general public to promote water safety throughout Ireland.  


Water Safety Ireland are asking people to take some basic steps to stay safe on or near water as people visit waterways nationwide or participate in coastal and inland aquatic activities during the summer months.

You, your family, or friends may be out enjoying the outdoors in the beautiful Lake County over the coming summer weeks and months. That is great…….but think about your safety when in/around the water.


If you see somebody in trouble on the water or along the coast, or think they are in trouble, use Marine VHF channel 16 or Dial 112 and ask for the Coast Guard.
