In the event of a coastal emergency, dial 112/999 and ask for the Coast Guard.

Emergency at sea, contact the Coast Guard on marine VHF channel 16 or via D.S.C. channel 70.

When on the water, always wear your lifejacket. It can save your life.









The Bonmahon Unit of the Irish Coast Guard is based just outside the village of Bonmahon, Co Waterford.  The unit covers a wide search area stretching from Annestown to the east all the way along to Clonea to the west.  This area contains some of the highest cliffs in the county; the Copper Coast Geopark; various sandy coves; and includes the county's two blue flag beaches:  Bonmahon itself, which recently regained its blue flag (June 09) and Clonea.

Since early 2007, the Bonmahon Unit has had full cliff rescue status enabling us to respond to all emergencies in our area.  The team comprises of the Officer in Charge (OIC), Deputy Officer in Charge (DOIC), plus fifteen volunteer members all of whom are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year as part of the 112/999 emergency services.  In October 2008, the unit received the Marine Ministerial Letter of Appreciation for Meritorious Service from Minister of State for Transport, Noel Ahern TD, for our efforts in the Pere Charles / Honeydew II incidents of January and February 2007.
