The death of three men whose upturned fishing boat was found off Coonanna in Co Kerry last night has “devastated” the local community, as BreakingNews.ie reports.

Post-mortems will be carried out today (Monday 1 October) on the bodies of the three Eastern European fishermen, who lived in the area.

It is understood that two of the men were found underneath their upturned 15ft fishing punt in the sheltered end of Coonanna harbour. The third may have tried to reach the shore before he died.
