THE NAVAL SERVICE vessel L.É. CIARA has detained an Irish registered fishing boat approximately 30 nautical miles South of Ballycotton Co.Cork.

The detention was in relation to an alleged breach of technical fishing regulations, the defence services said in a statement.

The fishing boat was escorted by the L.É. CIARA to Cobh after midnight last night, arriving this morning. It will be handed over to the Gardaí later today.

The Naval Service have carried out 946 boardings, issued 38 warnings and detained 12 vessels so far in 2012.
