People are being asked to tuck into a fish supper this month to help the RNLI save lives at sea.

For the month of October, the RNLI is asking the public to take part in its annual foodie fundraiser, Fish Supper, by holding their own suppers for family and friends or joining the raft of suppers being organised by RNLI fundraising teams.

Restaurateur and fishmonger Niall Sabongi will be asking customers at his Klaw restaurant in Dublin's Temple Bar to donate €2 on top of their meal for the campaign.

"In my business we rely on small fishing boats around the Irish coast to bring in our fresh catch and supply restaurants with the best in Irish fish. This time of year, we are getting into rougher weather and stormy seas and it is good to know that the RNLI are there if we need them," he said.
