Early this morning , Doolin Coast Guard team was tasked by MRSC Valentia to assist with evacuations at Lahinch . Team members assembled at various locations in Lahinch and assisted the Ennistymon Fire and Rescue Service and Clare County Council with traffic diversions due to impassable roads. Other members were sent to Quilty to assist with other storm  related incidents and later to Doolin where the team spent the day clearing debris, salvaging equipment  and repairing the damage done to the current Doolin Coast Guard Rescue Centre.
