Search For Missing Fisherman


The search for a missing fisherman off the Co. Wexford coast is continuing today.

The man in his mid 50’s – named locally as Paddy Barry – went to sea early yesterday morning for a days lobster fishing.

Mr. Barry wasn’t due back until last night, but the alarm was raised just before lunchtime when his boat was discovered near the saltee Islands.

A full search and rescue operation was launched involving dozens of local volunteers, three RNLI lifeboats from Co. Wexford and the Search and rescue helicopter from Waterford.
