New CCTV images of two Japanese tourists missing for almost a week have been released.

Eiji Takagi (63), who has joint American and Japanese nationality, and Ushio Azaki (61) arrived in Ireland from Tokyo on August 18.

Fears have been mounting over their whereabouts after they vanished from a popular scenic spot overlooking the Atlantic last Saturday.

They hired a car at Shannon Airport and are known to have stayed at a number of lodgings along the west coast.

Concerns were raised when their hire car - a red Hyundai with the registration plate 151 D 23003 - was found at George's Head in Kilkee, Co Clare.

Gardaí have released new images of the pair, which were taken at Kilkee Golf Club, Co Clare, last Friday.

A search operation around the south-west coast is ongoing.
