Search for missing fishermen in Cork suspended

The search for the remaining two missing fisherman from the sunken trawler the Tit Bonhomme was suspended at 4,30 pm this afternoon, and will continue in the morning.

The search continued today off Union Hall in west Cork with more than 40 volunteer divers in their search for the last two remaining fishermen who are missing since January 15.

Weather conditions off Union Hall were good for diving today, with calm seas expected to continue over the weekend, however underwater visibility is said to be poor at about 2 meters.

Divers operated in boat crews of eight divers on a rota basis, with each dive lasting up to fifty minutes at depths of around 20 metres.

The search is scheduled to recommence at 8.30 am on Sunday morning
