Coast Guard and volunteers rescued a man who became injured while kayaking in the Clare Glens yesterday.

The 26-year-old man broke his shoulder, and the Killaloe Coast Guard unit along with the Waterford Coast Guard helicopter were called. A helicopter was deployed but the location prevented the man from being winched.

Ground crews managed to pull the injured man up a 40 foot bank from the river, and he was then moved to hospital by ambulance.
