THE BODY OF a man has been found washed up on the shore of Inis Meáin.

The middle-aged man’s body was discovered by a passerby yesterday at around 8.30pm.

The body was then taken from the Aran Island and brought to University College Hospital Galway. Gardaí are carrying out an investigation into the man’s death.

Two weeks ago, a land, air and sea search was launched after a fisherman was reported to have been swept into the sea in Co Clare.

It’s understood the 40-year-old man was fishing in the Pulleen Bay near Doonbeg. Heavy coastal fog in the area in the following days hampered search efforts for the missing man.
