At the end of the day a two year old lad has died. Although the facts arent clear yet he apparently was not wearing a life jacket. His Father died too but he had a choice?

Live every day as if its your last and one day you will be spot on!!

If I recall it became law after a 25' fishing boat overloaded with Friends & children turned turtle off Co Wexford with the loss of several lives. no lifejackets were on board. sea state was calm, misty .
I would say there is a 95% compliance rate.
