World-famous fashion designer and Ballyheigue native Don O’Neill and 67-year-old Donal Hanley have both been hailed as heroes today after the pair were involved in the dramatic rescue of a man who had gotten into difficulty in the water at Ballyheigue Beach on Saturday afternoon.

Don and Donal were, thankfully, in the right place at the right time on Saturday when they heard the man’s calls for help. This was after he had been pulled out to sea by a rip current. They both leapt into action without hesitation.
