Youghal RNLI Lifeboat Station

Youghal RNLI station A coastal town such as Youghal with it's years of sea faring owes much to the local lifeboat crews who have risked all to come to the assistance of those most in need.

 

 

 

 


Youghal RNLI Lifeboat Station

 The current station is situated on the Mall in Youghal, a few yards further along from the Town Hall (the Mall House). A replacement of an older, smaller station, it was completed in September 2002 and is a welcome addition to Youghal's many architectural features.

Youghal's early reliance on the sea can be ascertained from the fact that at the end of the seventeenth century, Youghal had 33 registered vessels while Cork had 24 and Kinsale only 22. The large anchor which is outside the station comes from a nineteenth century schooner and was was presented to the new staion on its opening by Youghal Town Council. 

The lifeboat station currently houses an Atlantic 75 inshore rescue craft named Patricia Jennings, a generous bequest from the late Patricia Jennings, Dorking, Surrey. 

 

 


Established in 1839, the lifeboat station was built for the Harbour Commissioners but fell into disrepair. In 1857, the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) took over command of the sevice. Youghal lifeboat crews have been credited with saving over 200 lives and have earned several medals for bravery during rescues.
