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?
The present Lifeboat is the "Elizabeth & Ronald" , named after the people who
left the legacy which financed this boat.
