Two fishermen airlifted from separate vessels to Kerry General
Two fishermen have been airlifted to Kerry General Hospital this afternoon after falling ill on separate fishing trawlers.
The first call came from a French vessel 130 miles west of Valentia Island.
The helicopter was forced to divert from the first emergency to deal with a second, more serious, incident as it returned to Shannon.
This call came from a UK-registered trawler located 14 miles south of Castletownbere.
Both men received treatment at Kerry General Hospital in Tralee.
