Since the alarm was raised on Friday, search teams have been concentrating their efforts around the Cliffs of Moher where the man's car was first spotted on Thursday night.

It is believed that the missing man, who is aged in his 60s, is a well-known professional from the Dublin area.

The alarm was raised early on Friday when staff arriving for work at the Cliffs of Moher visitor centre saw that a car they had noticed the previous night was still parked in the same location.

Gardaí were alerted and began inquiries in an effort to establish more about the car owner and his movements.

Members of the Doolin unit of the Irish Coast Guard have been carrying out water and shoreline searches, assisted by the Shannon-based helicopter.

Meanwhile a woman in her 30s was airlifted to hospital after she got into difficulty swimming near Queerin, Co Clare, on Saturday.
