Doolin Coast Guard unit was tasked by Ennistymon Gardaí to search for a child thought to be missing at Lahinch Beach. It was not known if the child was in the water . Some of the team members took the Delta boat to Doolin pier and others went directly to Lahinch Beach and to Liscannor with the D-Class ready to launch. The Shannon Coast Guard Helicopter , Rescue 115 , arrived on the scene within minutes as it was in the air on route back to Shannon and carried out a search from the air. The child was located safe and well among the crowds on the busy Promenade  and all services were stood down.  Kilkee Coast Guard Unit and Lahinch Rescue were also tasked.

While still in Lahinch , a surfer who badly injured his hand  while surfing was treated by Coast Guard  members . First aid was administerd while arrangements were made for him to go to Shannon Doc for further care.

Incidents  11/12 and 12/12
