My Personal Message

Hey Guys,

Thanks for visiting our personal fund raising page. The RNLI charity is a very worthy cause and I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds for this charity. To try and raise a few Euro's Eoin and I are going to stay overnight in an Igloo which has been built on Duncannon Beach.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a registered charity that saves lives at sea. It provides a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service to 100 nautical miles out from the coast of the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. The RNLI, which provides nine out of ten sea rescue launches, continues to rely on voluntary contributions and legacies for its income.

You can donate using the "sponsor me now" button below via credit or debit card. You can be assured that your transaction on the website is very secure. You will automatically receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your support, and acknowledging the amount of your donation. Any donation no matter how small is hugely appreciated.

Many thanks in advance for your support,

Rory & Eoin



The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. We provide, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland, and a seasonal lifeguard service. With our lifeboats, safety advice and flood rescue, we are committed to preventing tragedies and tackling the international drowning epidemic.

Our work is based on and driven by our values. Our volunteers and staff strive for excellence and are ...

  • Selfless: willing to put the requirements of others before our own and the needs of the team before the individual, able to see the bigger picture and act in the best interests of the RNLI, and to be inclusive and respectful of others. Prepared to share our expertise with organisations that share our aims.
  • Dependable: always available, committed to doing our part in saving lives with professionalism and expertise, continuously developing and improving. Working in and for the community and delivering on our promises.
  • Trustworthy: responsible, accountable and efficient in the use of the donations entrusted to us by our supporters, managing our affairs with transparency, integrity and impartiality.
  • Courageous: prepared to achieve our aims in changing and challenging environments. We are innovative, adaptable and determined in our mission to save more lives at sea.

The RNLI in Ireland has 44 lifeboat stations operating 57 lifeboats that provide a ring of safety around the Irish coastline. This fleet enables the lifeboat service to reach at least 90% of all casualties that are within 10 nautical miles of lifeboat stations within 30 minutes of launch, in all weathers. Last year Irish Lifeboats launched 1087 times and rescued 1278 people.
