A MAN’S BODY washed up amongst swimmers at Kilkee Beach yesterday evening at around 6pm.

Lifeguards tried to resuscitate the man, believed to be in his 50s, in front of dozens of beach-goers out enjoying the weekend sunshine.

Gardaí told TheJournal.ie that the man was airlifted to University Hospital Limerick, but was pronounced dead a short time later.

It is believed the man was at the beach alone after a pile of his belongings were found on the shoreline. Gardaí in Kilrush were trying to identify him for a time last night.

Gardaí in Clare have told TheJournal.ie that the man has since been identified but they are not releasing his name at this time.
