THE BODY OF a man was found off the coast of Skerries last night.
A trawler found the remains near the Rockabill lighthouse yesterday afternoon and it was brought into Skerries Harbour.
Gardaí say that a post-mortem will take place today on the body.
They are pursuing a number of avenues as to the identity of the person found, one of which is that he may be a fisherman who went missing in January off the coast of Clogherhead.
He had fallen overboard from a trawler, the Zenith, when it was around 19 miles east of Clogherhead.
