The search for a missing fisherman who was struck by a wave in Clare this evening has been suspended until tomorrow.

The 42-year-old man was fishing with friends at Ballyreen near Fanore when he was struck by a wave.

One of his friends raised the alarm while another friend jumped into the sea and tried to save him.

Rescue units from Doolin and Shannon were dispatched to the area.

The search will resume tomorrow.
