The first lifeboats in Dublin Bay were run by the Port Corporation, they were amalgamated into the RNLI in 1862. A great many heroic rescues were carried out by all the lifeboats, and some tragedies also occurred. Today the lifeboats go out in all weather to try to save the lives of those who are in peril on the sea.

Cormack F. Louth will be recounting some of the history of these events and talking about the boats and the people who manned them. He will be showing a great many rare and interesting photographs, images, and charts.
