The lifeboats of Valentia have been in service since 1946, when the volunteer crew were summoned to action by the firing of maroon flares. Dick Robinson has been associated with the lifeboat station for almost 60 of those years, firstly as a child watching the flares, then as a serving crewmember, and finally as a maritime historian. In this detailed history, he captures the spirit of the station, together with the tragedies and sacrifices that make up its history. Valentia Lifeboats: A History, has been compiled using the first-hand accounts, original and rare images, and detailed records of the station. It is a fitting tribute to the people who have served here, and will be a record of the station for many years to come.

The Rotarian

The Valentia lifeboat Rowland Watts set off on the 78-kilometre run (42 nautical
miles) to the distressed ship, despite high winds and poor visibility. After five
hours of ploughing through stormy seas, the lifeboatmen sighted the casualty.

Valentia is an island off the coast of county Kerry. It has been the home of farmer-fishermen and technocrats alike, the site of a large slate and flagstone mine, one of the first meteorological stations, and of the first trans-Atlantic cable messages sent and received. The author traces the history of the island and describes life as it is today.

On 23 June 1985, Air India Flight 182, a Boeing 747-237B was on its way from Montreal, Canada, to London when it was blown up while in Irish airspace, and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. 329 people perished. It was the largest mass murder in modern Canadian history. The explosion and downing of the carrier was related to the Narita Airport Bombing. Investigation and prosecution took 25 years. The suspects in the bombing were members of the Sikh separatist Babbar Khalsa. Inderjit Singh Reyat, the only person convicted, was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
