Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Coast Guard Service
My Department funds the 44 volunteer Irish Coast Guard units comprising of approximately 1,000 volunteers.
The budget within Coast Guard Units and Support covers all operational and resourcing requirements for these units as well as grants to Mountain and Cave Rescue and Community Rescue Boat organisations.
Regrettably the Irish Coast Guard is not in a position to offer financial assistance to the Tory Island sea rescue voluntary group.
