CITATION:  16.	Incident occurred in Sligo – Adam McGoldrick, Gardai Stephen Fahy & James Conneely<br />
On the 6th of August 2017, Garda Stephen Fahy received a call that a man had entered the water at the Garavogue River.  He went to the river and noticed that a large crowd had gathered on the bridge. Both Garda Fahy and Adam McGoldrick entered the water and swam out approximately 30 meters to the man.  Adam brought a ringbuoy with him.  Garda James Conneely got into a small boat that was along the riverbank and with one ore made his way up the river towards Garda Fahy and Adam to assist in the rescue.  They brought the casualty to shallower water and then up onto a nearby embankment where the man was taken to hospital and treated for hypothermia.
