A search will resume off the Co Wicklow coastline at first light this morning for a man who fell overboard from a local fishing boat yesterday morning.

The man is understood to be in his late-40s or early-50s.

He was one of a crew of three on board the vessel.

Arklow, Wicklow and Rosslare lifeboats and the Coast Guard's 117 search & rescue helicopter from Waterford were all involved in the operation yesterday.

Local fishing vessels will also assist today.
