Two kayakers were found clinging onto bushes off Lamb Island on the lakes of Killarney on Saturday afternoon following a 999 call for help

The two men, who had been kayaking on the lakes of Killarney, got caught up in bad weather, with one of the two males ending up overboard and losing his kayak, before the pair managed to grab hold of bushes in a desperate bid to get to safety.
