The class B vessel, Irene, which has five crew members and 12 trainees on board, was in collision with a 25-foot yacht, near Kilmore Quay, Co.Wexford.

The yacht's mast was broken and it had to be towed to nearby Rosslare Harbour.

However, the Irene is continuing on its journey to Waterford.

The Waterford Airport-based Coast Guard helicopter was called out to the accident, as were other emergency services.
