Stephen Mungovan (20), who was from Quilty, was last seen on Sunday night. He was reported missing on Monday morning when attempts to contact him on his phone were unsuccessful.

The Irish Coastguard and gardai carried out searches on Monday, and naval divers joined the search yesterday, along with a search and rescue helicopter.

A body was recovered at approximately 3.30 this afternoon - close to where it is feared the young man had fallen into the sea.

A post mortem is due to take place at University Hospital Limerick.
