BreakingNews.ie reports that a sea angler has died in an incident on the Co Clare coast yesterday afternoon (Saturday 26 October).
The man, believed to be a Polish national in his 40s, had been fishing with another man at Castle Point near Kilkee when he was hit by an unexpected wave and swept into the sea.
The alarm was quickly raised while the man’s companion attempted to rescue the casualty but to no avail in conditions described as “rough”.
The incident occurred close to where a Hungarian man was swept into the ocean from sea cliffs in January last year.
