Shannon Airport 5th February 2024


Shannon Airport dealt with two further emergency diversions since operations were brought to a standstill for over two hours on Monday morning 5th February when the crew of a cargo flight used an emergency slide to evacuate their aircraft on the runway. Following on from that the crew of an Air France flight from Paris to Chicago declared an emergency over the North Atlantic also reporting they had a passenger on board who required medical assistance.

Flight AF-136 was about an hour southwest of Ireland, over two hours into its trip, when the crew declared a medical emergency and turned around. The crew opted to divert to Shannon and requested that emergency medical services be alerted and available for them on arrival.

The flight landed at Shannon at 3.41pm and was met by airport fire and rescue crews. Emergency vehicles remained with the Airbus A350-900 jet as it was directed to a remote stand where an ambulance was waiting. The ill passenger was transported by ambulance to University Hospital Limerick for treatment. ~The Clare Herald

Multi agency response to a vessel that struck Killaloe Bridge in County Clare on Wednesday 29th March. The alarm was raised at 12:17hrs after a vessel with two persons on board got into difficulty while trying to tie alongside at Ballina Quay. The vessel lost control in strong currents and ended up sideways stuck under the first arch on the Tipperary side of the bridge. The vessel had been damaged in the impact but was not taking on water.

A Multi agency response involved units from Killaloe Coast Guard,  CE15  Killaloe Fire and Rescue service, R115 from Shannon Airport and National Ambulance service from the Scarriff station. Killaloe Coast Guard set up a line from Ballina Quay and maneuvered the Rescue boat back onto the causality vessel, a crew member was transferred on board and removed the two occupants from the vessel, the Coast Guard boat then brought the two persons ashore at Ballina Quay,  once everyone was safely ashore and no injuries were reported R115 and the NAS were stood down. After an assessment of the vessel Killaloe Coast Guard attempted to tow the vessel but failed on the first attempt due to strong currents.

After a brief between the officer's on scene the Killaloe Fire and Rescue service set up a winch from the stern of the vessel back to Ballina Quay, the Coast Guard crew also set up a tow line from the stern of the vessel. After almost four hour's of great team work between the two crew's the vessel was safely removed from the bridge and moored at Ballina Quay. Well done to the crew from CE15 in Killaloe and   our crew from Killaloe Coast Guard for a great team response with a good outcome. ~

Units of Clare County Fire and Rescue Service from Ennis and Ennistymon stations responded to a reported fire in Knock, Kilmaley, County Clare on Wednesday 28th September. Water tankers from both stations and a hydraulic platform from Ennis were also dispatched to the scene.

The tankers were used to ferry water from an off-site source to the scene. Firefighters tackled the fire from above using the hydraulic platform and sprayed the building with water and foam in an effort to bring the fire under control.

At least one gas cylinder in the building exploded in the blaze while the roof of the structure later collapsed. Fire crews also set up three water monitor devices to concentrate water on a number of other gas cylinders in an effort to cool them down and prevent them from exploding. After the fire was brought under control the area was cordoned off to prevent anyone approaching the cylinders while they continued to cool. The scene was expected to remain cordoned off overnight and most of Thursday as a precaution
