The search for the missing people off the coast of Dunmore East has been called off until morning.
Although divers located the wreckage of the Pere Charles earlier in the day 2 1/2 miles south of the Hook on the south-east coast, they had to resurface due to bad weather.
Declan Geoghegan of the Irish Coastguard also says a lot of debris from the other missing trawler - the Kinsale-based 'Honeydew 2' - has been washed up today.
