Body recovered from the sea off Dublin

A body has been recovered from the sea off the coast of North County Dublin.

It was found by a trawler near the Rockabill Lighthouse and brought into Skerries Harbour at about 6.30pm.

The RNLI and the Gardaí were present as the body was removed to Blanchardstown Hospital, where a post mortem will be carried out tomorrow.

It's not yet known whether the remains are those of a man or a woman, but it's believed they may have been in the water for some time.

Tests will determine whether it could be a fisherman in his thirties who went missing from a trawler off Clogher Head at the end of January.
