Dunmore East

Dunmore East Lifeboat

Dunmore East is a small fishing village on the south-east coast of Ireland, 16kms from the city of Waterford. It sits on the western side of the Waterford Harbour Estuary, 4.8kms from Hook Head in Wexford.
Dunmore East, Co. Waterford, Ireland

The lifeboat has played such an important part in the life of Dunmore East

through the years that it deserves a substantial mention on the website.

For the moment I have just put up a picture and the details of the present

lifeboat, until such time as I can delegate somebody to write a piece about the

lifeboat that will do it justice. Any volunteers?
