Listen: Irish Coastguard Director Not In Favour Of Legislating "For Stupidity".

: 04/20/2018 - 15:20

The Director of the Irish Coastguard is not in favour of legislating "for stupidity".

There have been several incidents during extreme weather in recent months in which people have taken to the water, gotten in to difficulty, and been rescued by ICG.

These situations prompted calls on government to bring legislation enabling fines or other punishments to be issued to people who chose to engage in such behaviour in the midst of severe or extreme weather conditions.

ICG Director, Clane resident, Chris Reynolds, speaking to Kildare Focus says he does not support any such development
