Bodies of two men found following boating tragedy off coast of Donegal
Two men have died following a boating tragedy off the coast of Donegal.
The bodies of the men were recovered near Carrick in the parish Glencolmcille on Sunday.
The pair left the pier at Teelin in a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) on Saturday but did not return.
Rescue 118 helicopter, the Bundoran Lifeboat, the Killybegs Coast Guard and the Arranmore Lifeboat were involved in a large scale search before their bodies were found.
The coast guard was alerted shortly after 10.30am when a farmer came across one of the bodies - a man in his 50s - which had washed up on a beach.
The second body - of a man in his 40s - was found a short time later by a search helicopter and taken from the water by Bundoran lifeboat.
The bodies have been removed to Letterkenny University Hospital where post mortem examinations will take place.
