The search for Barry Davis Ryan is set to resume at first light today, 10 days after the drowning tragedy off Baltimore.

But it is expected that no diving will take place beyond lunch time as the weather is expected to deteriorate.

Mr Davis Ryan was washed into the sea at Baltimore Harbour in a tragedy that claimed the lives of his father, Barry Ryan (51) and girlfriend Niamh O'Connor (20) on June 20.

They had been walking close to the Beacon when one of them fell into the sea. The bodies of Mr Ryan and Ms O'Connor were recovered and funerals held last weekend.
