A search is continuing in Galway for a man who was seen entering the River Corrib in the city centre.

A taxi driver reported seeing the man entering the water at O'Brien's Bridge at around 11.30 on Wednesday night.

Gardai are liaising with Oranmore Maree Coastal search team and an investigation is underway.

Oranmore Maree Coastal search team say a search of the shoreline will take place this weekend.

The search commences from Calasanctius College in Oranmore from 12.30pm today.

They advise people wishing to help out to bring a hi-viz jacket, wellies, waterproof clothing and a stick as the terrain is very challenging and wet and can be windy at times.

The searches generally last 2-3 hours.
