Ciaran Doyle has been an active volunteer crew member at Wicklow Lifeboat station for over 30 years and currently holds the position of 2nd Coxswain. During this long lifeboat career he has been involved in many successful rescues and operations, often in dangerous situation. He therefore has firsthand knowledge and experience of marine rescue environment and its challenges. Ciaran also researched and published the history of the Wicklow Lifeboat Station in the book 'From Dauntless to Annie' in 1989. This publication traces the history of Wicklow Lifeboat from its inception in 1857 to the present day. On the night Ciaran will give us a presentation about this history with a Q&A session after.
