The LÉ Róisín continued its great work in the Mediterranean today as it successfully located and rescued a total of 111 migrants from a long rubber vessel located 37 Miles of the Libyan coast. Unfortunately, two deceased female migrants were also recovered.
The rescue started just before 7am and all migrants were on board before 10am. The LÉ Róisín is now proceeding towards the Port of Lampedusa where the migrants will be transferred over to Italian authorities.
LÉ Róisín has rescued almost 900 people to date.
