#Drowning - The Irish Times names the two Irishmen who died off the Greek island of Crete last week as John James Lynch and Kevin Eugene Devine.

Lynch (45) and Devine (46), who are thought to be from Co Louth, drowned off Mavros Molos on Kissamos Bay on Friday 29 August after entering the water to swim despite the beach being red flagged to bathers.

Surfers in the vicinity went the aid of the men when they were spotted in difficulties, but they were reportedly dead when brought back to the shore.

It's understood that the beach lifeguard had gone off duty a short time before the Irishmen entered the water.
