Body Of Tipperary Man Found Of Clare Coast

The body of a man in his early 30’s believed to be a native of Co Tipperary, has been recovered from the sea, close to land, off the Clare coast.

Shortly after 4.00pm yesterday afternoon the alarm was raised by a woman, out for a stroll along the cliffs at Chimney Bay, north of Kilkee Bay, who had spotted what she believed was a body floating, face down on the surface of the water.

Kilkee Marine Rescue Services were alerted and volunteers were sent to land and sea vantage points, in a search and recovery operation, which quickly located the body.

The name of the deceased male has not yet been disclosed, subject to further identification, but the incident is being treated as a personal tragedy.
