When a six years old boy fell into the sea at Kinvara, Mr P. Green, a fisherman, raised the alarm. Mr John Holland, who lives on the quayside,  dashed from his house and dived into the water, which was 10 feet deep at the time.
With the aid of a lifebuoy, thrown by Mr Green, Mr Holland brought the boy ashore.

This is the second life save there by Mr Holland.
