The boat is being held over an alleged breach of fishing regulations. It was detained by the naval service vessel LE Aisling (pictured) around 125 nautical miles off the coast of Loop Head this afternoon.

The boat is currently being escorted to Castletownbere in Cork by the LE Aisling, where it is expected to arrive sometime tomorrow morning. The vessel will then be handed over to the Gardaí.

This is the 11th vessel to be detained by the naval service so far this year.
