An incident in which a 14-year-old boy died in Cork Harbour is being treated as a tragic accident.
A post mortem is expected to be carried out later on the body of Jack O'Sullivan.
He went missing while swimming with friends in Passage West on Thursday, and the alarm was raised just after 2pm.
His body was pulled from the water a few hours later following an operation involving the Coast Guard, the R117 rescue helicopter and Crosshaven RNLI - along with Gardaí, ambulance crews and the fire service.
Jack was due to start 2nd year at Coláiste Éamann Rís in Cork city next week.
Irish Independent Southern Correspondent Ralph Riegel told Newstalk Breakfast a major search was carried out.
"It appears that one boy seems to have drifted from the others and he was seen going underneath the water and not coming back up," he said.
"The emergency services were there within a couple of minutes; a major search commenced.
"Unfortunately they were not immediately able to locate him."
Mr Riegel said it is being treated as a tragic accident.
"Around 4 o'clock a body was located in the water and successfully recovered," he said.
"His remains were transferred last night to Cork University Hospital, and the Office of the State Pathologist has been notified.
"We're expecting a full post mortem examination to be conducted today at CUH.
"The incident is being treated as a tragic accident, and Gardaí will prepare a file on the matter for the Cork coroner," he added.
