Search underway for missing fisherman in west Cork

A MAJOR search operation is underway in west Cork for a fisherman who failed to return home last night.

The fisherman, Kodie Healy from Goleen, was fishing in the Dunmanus Bay area on his own and was due to return to shore at around 6pm yesterday evening.

However, the alarm was raised after 8pm last night by his family when it became clear that he had not returned.

He is from a local fishing family and is in his early 20s.

This morning, from first light, members of the Schull and Goleen Coastguard, the Castletownbere Lifeboat, Rescue 115 and the WB Yeats naval vessel have been spearheading a search of the area for the missing fisherman.

Local fishing boats have also joined in the search.
