Doolin Coast Guard Unit was tasked by MRSC Valentia , earlier today to an incident South of Hags Head. A charter boat had called Shannon Coast Guard Radio to request assistance when a dinghy that had been launched from their boat capsized. The dinghy , with two people on  board, had capsized close to shore at Lough na Saggart .The team assembled and launched the D-Class and Delta boats and proceeded to the location . The D-Class boat took crew ashore , they confirmed that both persons on shore were not injured. They took them on board the D-Class and they were transferred back to the charter boat where they changed into dry clothes, they did not require any medical assistance. The D-Class then returned to the shore to tow the dinghy back out where it was taken on board the charter boat. The Delta and-Class returned to base .
