A search is underway on Lough Mask again this morning after a fisherman failed to return to shore on Friday.
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 on Friday and the alarm was raised when he failed to return.
The man’s boat was recovered on Saturday last.
Gardai in Claremorris told Midwest News that the search has resumed again this morning on Lough Mask.
Gardai, the Corrib Mask Search and Rescue and local volunteers are involved in the operation.
