RTE weather presenter, Evelyn Cusack, joined the crew of Kinsale RNLI at the launch of their MAYDAY appeal which is running nationwide from Wednesday 1st May until Bank Holiday Monday 6th May.  The charity, which operates 44 lifeboat stations in Ireland, is asking the public to buy a special yellow welly RNLI MAYDAY key-ring for €2 or to hold a welly fundraising event to raise funds for Irish lifeboats. The RNLI MAYDAY appeal is proudly supported by John West.   The yellow welly is an essential piece of the RNLI volunteer‘s kit.  Waterproof with steel-capped toes, the specially designed boots keep the volunteer crew’s feet warm and dry while also protecting them in dangerous conditions on deck. During gale force winds, rain and ice, keeping a sure footing can literally mean the difference between life and death for our volunteers. A pair of yellow wellies for a volunteer costs €50.  Kinsale RNLI is the designated charity for the Heineken Kinsale Rugby 7s this year, so the key rings will be on sale at the grounds throughout the weekend of 4-5th May.  For more information about MAYDAY, events that are happening and where you can buy a key-ring go to www.rnli.org/mayday
