Unexpected highlight of trip to Aran Islands

During a recent trip to the Aran Islands, I was delighted to get the unexpected bonus of being able to observe a simulated Helicopter rescue. I must say that, even in good weather, it was very exciting to watch coast guard guy get dropped from the Helicopter while the ferry still continued travelling at top speed. In the way back up the (empty) stretcher was bounced quite violently against the helicopter so maybe it is just as well there was no seriously ill patient on board.
