The Irish Coast Guard helicopter, Rescue 116, was called to the scene after the alert was raised this afternoon.

The walkers were assessed by Dublin Fire Brigade paramedics and firefighters from Donnybrook and Dolphins Barn attended the rescue.

The RNLI were also part of the multi-agency response to the incident.

Emergency services have been called to Sandymount on several occasions in recent years after people became trapped by rising tides.

In August, one person was rescued after they became stranded in the sea at the strand.
