Exclusion Zone Set Up Around Wreck of Fishing Vessel 'Tit Bonhomme'

#GLANDORE TRAWLER – In the interest of safety and to facilitate any search and recovery operations in the vicinity of the sunken vessel the F.V. TIT BONHOMME, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has set up an exclusion zone has been created around the vicinity of the vessel.

Divers are expected to resume the search for five missing fishermen from the vessel this morning.

The vessel lies between Adam and Eve Islands in the approaches to Glandore Harbour, County Cork.

Only vessels and persons authorised by the Irish Coast Guard (IRCG) are permitted to enter this area, which lies within a 200 metre radius, centred on the wreck in approximate position:

51° 32'.4 N, 009° 06'.1 W.

Accordingly, for safety reasons, all other vessels in the vicinity are requested to keep clear of the exclusion zone and give this area a wide berth.

The exclusion zone will continue until further notice.
