Polish diver funeral to take place in Galway

The funeral is to take place today of the Polish diver who lost his life while exploring an underground cave last week.

The funeral of Artur Kozlowski, 33, will take place in Galway. Mr Kozlowski, a quantity surveyor, had been living in Ireland since 2006.

The alarm was raised last Monday when Mr Kozlowski, a very experienced diver, failed to resurface from a diving trip in a flooded inland cave outside Gort.

Members of the Irish Cave Rescue Organisation located his body about 170ft down in the deepest section of the cave.

However, it took a specialist team from England several days to bring his body to the surface.
