Body found in search for missing fisherman in Cork

Tragic news.

The body of a man has been located by Gardaí following a multi-agency search operation that took place in Dunmanus Bay, Cork.

Members of An Garda Síochána, members of the Coast Guard, Irish Naval Service, Civil Defence and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution carried out searches in the Dunmanus Bay area following the discovery of the wreckage of a boat near the coastline on Wednesday.

On Sunday evening, Gardaí confirmed that the body of a man was found at sea shortly after 4pm and, at time of writing, is currently being brought ashore by the Irish Naval Service.

The deceased has not been formally identified, though An Garda Síochána have noted that all search operations have been officially stood down.

His body will be removed to Cork University Hospital where a post-mortem examination will be carried out.
