A multi-agency rescue operation continues this morning in Co Mayo after a man became trapped in a sea cave.
Ardaí and emergency services remain at the scene of an ongoing operation in the Downpatrick Head area.
It is understood he may have been caught by rising water in the cave on Saturday night.
A Malin Head Coastguard spokesman said they had been tasked with the scene and the situation was ongoing.
“There are many agencies there this morning, from coastguard to lifeboat to cliff rescue and gardaí. They hope to get this man out soon,” the spokesman said.
“I think this cave has access both from above and from the sea, and I think he may have come down from above and been trapped.”
