Funeral for boat victims

THE funeral will take place in Glengarriff today of the two retired German sea captains who died in a motor cruiser tragedy last week.

Wolfgang 'Mike' Schmidt (64) and Wolfgang Schroder (60) died alongside Adrigole native Richard Harman (69) when their motor cruiser caught fire, exploded and sank last Monday.

Only one man, American Edward 'Ed' Dziato (46), survived the tragic accident.

Last night, hundreds gathered to pay their last respects ahead of a joint ceremony at noon today.
