Two people who were rescued off the coast of Co Kerry yesterday are said to be in good health.
The man and woman were on board a yacht which was damaged in a storm after it left the West Indies two weeks ago.
The boat was drifting in the Atlantic for several days before it was spotted by a routine Air Corps patrol yesterday.
It was towed to safety late last night.
