Search to resume for three fishermen off west Cork coast

The bodies of two of the five fishermen who went missing last Sunday were recovered yesterday.

THE SEARCH FOR the three fishermen still missing off the coast of Union Hall in west Cork will resume this morning.

The bodies of two of the five men who went missing when their trawler sank last Sunday were recovered yesterday.

Dive teams are expected to return to the sheltered cove where the bodies of  21-year-old Kevin Kershaw and 26-year-old Attia Shaban were found yesterday to resume their search.

Members of the garda and naval dive teams also hope to search other areas of Glandore Bay off the coast of Union Hall where the Tit Bonhomme ship sank last Sunday morning.

Weather conditions are reported to be favourable and the search is expected to resume after 8am this morning.

It is hoped that the dive teams and the coast guard can recover the trawler’s  skipper Michael Hayes, 52, and Egyptians Wael Mohammed and Saied Ali Eldin who are all still missing.
