Hopes High On Locating Rescue 116

Search teams looking for missing helicopter Rescue 116 off the Mayo coast are hoping to use improved weather conditions this afternoon, to get closer to the wreckage. Heavy swells around Blacksod Bay in recent days has prevented boats from getting near the site where a signal from the black box was detected. Captain Dara Fitzpatrick was laid to rest yesterday while her colleagues Mark Duffy, Paul Ormsby and Ciarán Smith are still missing.
