Donate: RNLI Ireland Lifesavers Fund

The RNLI relies on donations from you, the public, to continue saving lives at sea and on inland waters

Keeping a modern fleet of lifeboats maintained, fuelled and ever-ready to go to the rescue from all of Ireland’s 36 lifeboat stations is expensive. The RNLI Ireland rely entirely on voluntary donations to ensure this service is maintained. Add to that, crew training and kit, and the euros start to add up. It costs an average of 165k to run lifeboat stations in Ireland but recently, with the implications of Covid-19, the RNLI haven’t been able to fundraise as normal to keep our lifeboats afloat.

The RNLI rely on donations from you, the public, to continue saving lives at sea and on inland waters. Your donation will help support the running of the following lifeboat stations in Ireland:

Achill Island, Aran Islands, Arklow, Arranmore, Ballycotton, Ballyglass, Baltimore, Bundoran, Castletownbere, Clifden, Clogher Head, Courtmacsherry Harbour, Courtown, Crosshaven, Dún Laoghaire, Dunmore East, Fenit, Fethard, Galway, Helvick Head, Howth, Kilmore Quay, Kilrush, Kinsale, Lough Derg, Lough Ree, Lough Swilly, Rosslare Harbour, Skerries, Sligo Bay, Tramore, Union Hall, Valentia, Wexford, Wicklow and Youghal.

What the RNLI do

The RNLI lifeboats in Ireland protect hundreds of communities through their 24-hour search and rescue service. They rely on the safest, most reliable lifeboats and modern stations to launch from.

Ireland's unrivalled coasts and inland waters are valued by local communities and visitors alike, with millions travelling to enjoy them, and work on them each year. But the water remains an unpredictable environment that can catch people out. People will always need our help and we will always be there to answer that call.

The RNLI relies on donations from you, the public, to continue saving lives at sea and on inland waters – your donation to the charity will help support the running of a host of lifeboat stations around Ireland.
