The search for three fishermen missing since their trawler sank in west Cork last Sunday will resume again tomorrow.

Today's operation focused on the area close to the Tit Bonhomme, which lies at the mouth of Glandore Bay.

Voluntary search and rescue sub-aqua units, as well as garda divisional search teams, joined the search.

Civil defence personnel also accompanied members of the public on shoreline searches from Reen Point to a Galley Head.

Skipper Michael Hayes and Egyptian crewmen Wael Mohammed and Saied Ali Eldin have been missing since the vessel sank.

Divers recovered the bodies of 21-year-old Kevin Kershaw and 26-year-old Attia Shaban on Thursday.
