The lads on EI-CXS were very busy again last night out in the Atlantic:

QUOTE A fisherman was airlifted from a Dutch fishing vessel with a partially severed hand last night.
The Irish Coastguard rescue helicopter in Sligo was deployed at around 8.30pm yesterday and winched the man from the vessel.
The boat was located about 80km northwest of the Erris coast.
The fisherman was airlifted by the Coastguard to Sligo Airport from where he was transferred by ambulance to Sligo General Hospital for treatment. UNQUOTE RTE NEWS

They have a fuel depot on Eagle Island (off Erris) which gives them a considerably longer reach in this area.

It was. But today was Exceptional! As chance would have it, I got a closer look at the SAR operation earlier. Sound lads all, and they only slapped me gently while informing me that the fuel depot is in Blacksod Bay, not Eagle Island. Sorry lads, my bad.

So many thanks to a whole different bunch of folks - you know who you are!
