Water Safety at the Halloween Bank Holiday

John Leech, C.E.O. of Water Safety Ireland talks to Noel McGuinness about their water safety bank holiday alert. John says that the risk of drownings is higher over the coming bank holiday due to cooler waters, wind chill and particularly high tides due to a new moon. Stranding will also be a risk for many walkers as lower tides will expose even greater areas of the coastline. He also reminds us that Water Safety Ireland has swimming, lifesaving, water survival and rescue classes nationwide. For further information see
