LMG Further Strengthened by New Appointment
Monday, 07 March 2011 00:56
The news that Mr. Terry Johnson has been appointed chairman of the Lifeboat Management Group (LMG) for the RNLI at Dun Laoghaire is most welcome. Formerly a deputy chairman of the RNLI, he is an accomplished mariner and has a long-standing commitment to the charitable work of the institution that saves lives at sea.
Terry is no stranger to Dun Laoghaire Harbour and is extremely well known as a Dublin Bay and offshore racing sailor. He is a member of Royal Ocean Racing Club and was the Irish team-manager for the 1987 Admiral’s Cup. These days he spends his spare time cruising on ‘Nyabo’ and his sons and grandsons are also keen and competitive sailors.
The role of LMG is to co-ordinate the various roles of the RNLI’s work in the area, from fund-raising to sea-safety awareness, publicity and the vital role carried out by the two lifeboats and their volunteer crews that are based at the station.
