Divers from the Irish Navy yesterday joined in the search for missing fisherman Daniel Doherty who went missing off the Mayo coast last Friday. The 23-year-old fisherman went missing after he went out to work on lobster pots from Rinroe Pier. His boat was found later that evening without any trace of Mr Doherty. Members of his family had asked for every assistance to be made in helping locate him.
Since he was reported missing local boats, coast guard crews, members of local sub aqua clubs, and other local volunteers have all been involved for the search for him along the coastline.
