Welcome to Schull Community Inshore Rescue Service

Schull Community Inshore Rescue Service (SCIRS) is a voluntary rescue organisation that has successfully grown from an idea to a fully recognised facility. We have built the boat house, bought the boat, trained the crew and received accreditation from the Irish Coast Guard and Irish Water Safety.


Capital expenditure to date is in the region of €300,000. This has been made possible thanks to our current members, generous donations, fundraising activities, grant-aid from Community Foundation of Ireland, and, West Cork Development Partnership, along with an Allied Irish Bank loan facility. 


Continuous support is required to maintain the service, with annual running costs in the region of €20,000.


Part of our ongoing fundraising is to invite members of the public to become members of SCIRS. The cost of membership is €75 per annum. Please forward your membership donation to SCIRS, c/o Adrienne Bray, MCS, Main St., Schull, Co. Cork. Don’t forget to include your name and contact details so we can send you the current car sticker. Please renew your membership and encourage others to join.


Thank you for your support.

If you need assistance dial 112 or 999 and ask for the COASTGUARD.
