The men were found separately near Mallinbeg, Glencolmcille in the county. It is understood the two had taken off from Teelin Pier in a rigid inflatable boat (rib) last night.

The body of a man in his 50s was discovered on the shore at Mallinbeg shortly after 10.30am this morning and the alarm was raised.

A second body, a man believed to be in his 40s, was located in the water by Coast Guard officers a short time later.
