#LoughDerg - RTÉ News reports on the death of a 69-year-old woman after an accident at Dromineer Marina on Lough Derg late on Saturday night.

A male companion who was unable to get her out of the water raised the alarm, and she was retrieved by RNLI volunteers - but was sadly pronounced dead after arriving at University Hospital Limerick.

Elsewhere, a man is stable in hospital after he fell into the Bloody Bridge river in Newcastle, Co Down, according to BBC News.

The man fell from Bloody Bridge before 3am early on Sunday morning, and was arlifted to Daisy Hill Hospital by Irish Coast Guard helicopter.
