#LoughRee - The News Letter in Belfast has a report from an eyewitness to the tragedy on Lough Ree yesterday (20 March) that claimed one life today, with another man critically ill and one still missing.
Tommy Byrne told how his dogs "got a bit spooked" by the sudden squall on the lough that capsized the boat the three Co Armagh anglers were travelling in.
“It just appeared to me that the squall got them, hit their boat and sank them," he said. "It was just a random freak accident."
Byrne, who joined in with the search and rescue operation, said conditions on the lough yesterday afternoon "were nasty enough, but it wasn't particularly wild."
