Search for missing Irishman goes on

Shane Hickey

THE search for an Irishman believed to have been buried in the rubble of the New Zealand earthquake is continuing.

JJ O'Connor has been missing since last Tuesday when the PGG building in Christchurch, in which he was working as an accountant, collapsed during the tremors.

Mr O'Connor is originally from Lisereen, Abbeydorney, in Co Kerry. He had been living in New Zealand for a year with his wife Sarah and two-year-old son Dan.
