Video: Dramatic RNLI footage of rescue on Irish beach...

The Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) have released a stunning video of multiple rescues off the Wicklow coast on Wednesday.

The clip shows a crew-member swimming to rescue a woman who had been swept into cave near Silver Strand beach, one mile south of Wicklow Head. After returning the woman to shore the RNLI was called out once again to air rescue two people and bring them to hospital with the help of the Coast Guard helicopter. The duo had injured themselves on the rocks trying to return to the beach.

If that wasn't enough heroics for one day, they assisted a fourth person in difficulty near the Strand.

We greatly admire the bravery of the RNLI here at JOE and when you consider that many members of the lifeboat crew are volunteers, we think their dedication is nothing short of remarkable.

Hats off to them… If you want to donate to the RNLI make sure to head over here.
