A body has been recovered from the sea off the coast of North Co Dublin.

It was found by a trawler near the Rockabill lighthouse off the coast of Skerries.

The body was brought into Skerries Harbour at around 6.30pm this evening.

It was removed to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown where a post mortem will take place tomorrow.

Gardaí are trying to determine if the man’s body is that of a fisherman who went missing from a trawler off the coast of Clogherhead in January.
