    Presumably related to the significant helicopter noise over the harbour for the last hour or so (now gone). There are vids on Twitter showing lots of blue lights in the area.

    Lots of blue lights earlier either side of the river in NUIG and along Dyke Road, south of the Quin Bridge. Hopefully a false alarm.

    I thought yesterdays recovery brought the total to 2 but it seems they have recovered 3 of the 4 missing according to Oranmore Maree Coastal Search Unit.

    the chap at Salthill & the girl at the Salmon Weir Bridge. When & where was the 3rd person located?
