Search for man off Clare coast to resume

A search for a man feared drowned after he fell into the sea off Co Clare is to resume today.

The man had been fishing with a friend from rocks near the lighthouse at Blackhead to the north of the county.

One of the men fell into the sea and his companion raised the alarm.

A major search involving the Doolin unit of the Irish Coast Guard and the Shannon-based rescue helicopter was called off for the night at about 6pm last night.

The search is due to resume today.
