Missing wreck diver search goes on

The search has resumed for a diver who went missing near a shipwreck off the south-west coast

A search for a diver missing in waters near a shipwreck off the south-west coast has resumed.

The German man in his fifties was part of a three-man team examining the SS Minnehaha, a World War One ocean liner sunk off Cape Clear, Co Cork.

A lifeboat crew from Baltimore went out at 7am.

The missing man had been on the wreck with two other men about 12 miles south of the town when he failed to surface.

Naval vessel LE Ciara had been co-ordinating the search operation on Tuesday night.
