The search for the two missing fishermen in Glandore Harbour is set to continue tomorrow.

Throughout today over 70 divers continued to search a stretch of water between Adam's Island and Long Point.

The area has been identified by the Irish Coastguard as a "hot spot", but so far there is no sign of the missing men.

Over 350 people once again took part in the air and sea search for the men, skipper Michael Hayes and crewman Saied Aly Eldin, missing since their trawler, the TitBonhomme, sank two weeks ago.

Teams of divers were being ferried in and out to the dive site as circular searches of the seabed were carried out.

The Rescue 115 helicopter from Shannon and the LE Orla were also involved.
