National TV Award: TV3 – Ireland AM
Ireland AM featured an in-studio interview with IWS Lifeguards along with a couple who nearly lost their three grandchildren to drowning. The coverage highlighted the importance of child supervision and in the wake of six child drownings in 2014, the interviews were particularly relevant.
