Divers searching for three fishermen missing since their trawler sank in Glandore Bay in west Cork have found a body.

The body of 32-year-old Egyptian crewman Wael Mohammed was recovered by a group of local divers this morning.

The Tit Bonhomme sank last Sunday with five men on board and three bodies have now been recovered.

The bodies of Kevin Kershaw and Attia Shaban were recovered on Thursday.

Skipper Michael Hayes and Egyptian crewman Saied Ali Eldin are still missing.

Mr Mohammed's brother Abdul was the only survivor of the sinking.

Divers have now wound down their search for the night.

A search of eight miles of the coastline is continuing on land.

Prayers were said at mass in Union Hall today for the five men.
