A search is underway on Lough Mask after a fisherman failed to return to shore yesterday.

The local man, who is believed to be in his 70’s and an experienced angler, is reported to have departed the Ballinrobe side of the lake at about 12 noon yesterday and the alarm was raised when he failed to return.

It is believed the man’s boat was recovered on Saturday. Searches yesterday were hampered by poor conditions.

Gardai say that searches are underway in the Cushlough area of Claremorris for a man in his 70s who went out on his boat yesterday.

Gardai and the Lough Corrib Search and Rescue are involved in the operation today.
