Search continuing in Galway today for man who entered the water on Tuesday

A search is continuing in Galway for a man who is believed to have entered the River Corrib on Tuesday morning.

Earlier today the fire service deployed a tracker buoy simulator in to the water in a bid to locate the body.

GardaĆ­ say they have no reports for a missing person which they say is a cause for concern.

The male is described as medium build and was wearing a grey hoodie at the time and a dark colour wind cheater.

The multi-agency search of the Corrib has at various times involved the Galway and Costello Lifeboats, GardaĆ­, fire service, ambulance service, the Civil Defence and the Shannon rescue helicopter.

The Oranmore Maree search unit has today joined the search effort, and is combing the Oranmore coastline this afternoon.
