As darkness approaches the all-weather lifeboat Hilda Jarrett and inshore lifeboat Bessie have been stood down from the search. The lifeboats are returning to base in Baltimore Harbour. Onboard the Hilda Jarrett were Coxswain Kieran Cotter, Jerry Smith, Colin Whooley, Brian McSweeney, Eoin Ryan, Don O’Donovan and Sean McCarthy, all of whom have been have been out since 06:20 this morning. Two RIB crews were deployed on Bessie, Helm John Kearney, Tadhg Collins and Jim Baker who took the morning shift and in the afternoon Helm Kieran Collins, Jason Pavry and John McDonagh. Despite the best efforts of all the outcome has not been a good one and our thoughts are with the families and friends of the crew.
