A boat carrying three passengers has been towed safely to shore after getting into difficulty off the south Donegal coast last night.

The volunteer crew of Bundoran RNLI lifeboat were called out to the boat which had broken down off Mullaghmore Head.

The alert was raised shortly after 9:30pm by Malin Head Coast Guard with both the Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat and the Sligo based Rescue 118 helicopter attending the scene.

Launching in calm conditions the lifeboat, with four volunteer crew on board, made its way to the western side of Mullaghmore Head where they took the boat and passengers on board under tow back to Mullaghmore Pier.
