Coast Guard searches through the night for missing fisherman

The man has been missing off the Mayo coast since last night.

A SEARCH HAS resumed for a fisherman who is feared to have fallen from his boat off the Mayo coast.

A relative of the man, who was in the boat alone, raised the alarm late last night after he failed to arrive home.

Lifeboats from local stations and the Ballyglass Coast Guard unit, as well as the Rescue 115 helicopter joined the search off Belmullet last night.

They searched through the night in difficult conditions but had to call off the operation at around 3am.

Today, despite the tough conditions, they will continue the search.
