Clogherhead Lifeboat Station is situated in Clogherhead, Ireland and is in operation for more than 100 years.[1] The station currently runs one lifeboat, a Mersey-class All-Weather lifeboat.

History[edit]

Rescues have been taking place out of Clogherhead at least as early as 1826.[2] In 1993 the station saw its boathouse rebuilt to accommodate the modern Mersey-class lifeboat.[3]
