About the River Moy Search and Rescue

Charity CHY 19910


Although the title states that it is a search and rescue organisation, River Moy Search and Rescue is in fact a search and recovery organisation.

The organisation consists of a group of volunteers who will help in a search for somebody who may have been tragically lost in an inland water body. The principal objective is to perform search and recovery work on the River Moy in Ballina.

The River Moy Search and Rescue also conducts a phenomenal amount of river bank clean-ups while on training missions, working quietly behind the scenes to ensure that our beautiful River Moy remains safe for our wildlife too.
