A Garda from Roscommon Town was recently presented with a National Bravery Award for his role in helping to save a woman’s life in Dublin last year.

  On October the 31st 2018, Garda Donal Tully and another Garda observed a young woman in the sea at White Rock, Killiney, Co. Dublin.

  Garda Tully immediately entered the sea, swam a considerable distance out to the woman and attempted to rescue her. Garda Gavin, who had located a lifebuoy, entered the water at knee-level to assist Garda Tully. Both Gardaí were then able to pull the woman to safety.

  For his actions, Garda Donal Tully was awarded a Bronze Medal and Certificate of Bravery. The presentation took place at Farmleigh House, Dublin.

  Garda Tully, of Castle Manor, Roscommon, is son of Anne and the late Tim Tully.
