Two fishermen have been rescued off Arranmore Island after their half-decker was struck by a wave.
Despite the lovely weather being enjoyed all across the county the West Bay spot where the men got into difficulty is notoriously hazardous for fishing.
The area is very shallow and is full of rocks and can be difficult to negotiate around in heavy seas.
The half-decker was hit with a wave and began taking on water very quickly.
A mayday call was quickly issued and as ever the Arranmore Lifeboat was on hand almost immediately to assist in the rescue operation.
Both men were removed to Letterkenny General Hospital by the Sligo 118 rescue chopper.
Both were assessed by medical personnel but were fine and had sustained no injuries during the ordeal.
Both the Arranmore Lifeboat service and the 118 rescue chopper have been praised for their prompt actions during the rescue operation.
