Amongst the last awards made by the Royal Humane Society are the names of Constable Michael Carbery, Kinvara, Co. Galway, for the bronze medal of the Society, for plunging into 15 feet of water in Kinvara Harbour at the risk of his own life, and saving that of a man named Keane, who was 76 years of age and who had fallen from the pier.
